CMC's Takeover at Kimball Farm

The heart of Corcoran Management Company lies in its incredible employees, so it is only right to celebrate them all together. The company just held its favored annual company outing at Kimball Farm in Westford, MA. Corcoran employees were rewarded with much deserved relaxion and fun after months of unwavering dedication and hard work in the midst of a global pandemic. The day was filled with unique activities, delicious food, and wonderful conversation among employees from all properties.

The day began with coffee to fuel up for golf as the first event of the day. This was followed by the relay event which consisted of a bounce ball race, a sack race and an egg race. Staff could also compete for the best score in the daylong Skee-Ball tournament, play cornhole and volleyball, or even work on their swings at the driving range.

A delightful lunch was served after a packed morning and everyone was greeted with ten raffle tickets to take their shot at one of several prizes as well as two free drink chips to kick off the afternoon. Employees were also able to cool off with Kimball Farm's famous fresh-made ice cream prepared right on site! Everyone was able to choose from several different flavors and add any topping of their desire. What can be better than that?

Marquisa Gaines gave a fantastic introduction to the Diversity Equity and Inclusion working group which aims to promote DEI initiatives at CMC. The group provided orange pins at the outing to raise awareness about the group and its efforts to incorporate greater diversity, equity, and inclusion into the company culture. The group was excited to announce that they will be hosting a cultural potluck to celebrate different kinds of food, music, and cultural traditions that reflect the diversity of CMC's staff. 

CMC ended the lovely day with a cocktail reception, competition awards, and the distribution of raffles and gift baskets to each respective winner.
