(York, PA ) Wagman celebrating its 115th Anniversary this year, hosted family style events in both Pennsylvania and Virginia where the majority of their employees and families live. The events provided employees and their families opportunities to enjoy a special outing and share in a festive celebration.
“Celebrating 115 years is a milestone for any company, especially a family business like ours. We believe the integrity of the people who work at Wagman has been and continues to be instrumental to our success and deserves to be celebrated” states Lisa Wagman Glezer, Vice President of Wagman, Inc. She continues, “We wanted to host family events in Pennsylvania and Virginia to include all of our employees and families for this milestone celebration. We have an amazing Special Events Committee with representation from multiple offices and departments who provided input and were integral in orchestrating these events.”
The events were geared towards people of all ages while also incorporating some of the favorite family activities from Wagman’s annual “Take Your Child to Work Day” like estimating contests and dressing up in safety gear.
The Virginia event was held at Kings Dominion where families enjoyed a day at the theme park as well as lunch, raffles, an estimating contest, safety display table and photo ops with construction themed props.
The Pennsylvania event was held at PeoplesBank Park, home of the York Revolution. This event was a Fall Family Festival theme with various activities including pumpkin decorating, pumpkin tic-tac-toe, face painting, balloon twisters and a Velcro wall in addition to the standard park attractions. Kids enjoyed Critter Connections, a hands-on critter show with animals like guinea pigs, turtles, bunnies and snakes and both kids and adults had fun with the dunk tank, featuring some key executives who got dunked during “Toss the Boss.” Proceeds from the dunk tank were donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Seven pieces of construction equipment lined the perimeter of the ballfield where participants could climb into the driver’s seat. The batting cages, Oogo balls and playground equipment were also available for use. Upstairs in the White Rose Room, participants took their best guess at the estimating contest and worked with their families on creating a structure with only marshmallows and toothpicks. Prizes were handed out for the tallest structure and for the most creative. Everyone had a chance to try on safety gear and make use of the photo prop area. Additionally, raffle prizes and door prizes were handed out to lucky winners.
