Troop K Celebrates “Take Your Child to Work” Day

kids at work On Thursday, April 26th, the Florida Turnpike District sponsored “Take Your Child to Work” day. Major Richard D. Carpenter and his son, Bradley, Captain James G. Brierton and his son, Daniel, Administrative Secretary June Beebee and her daughter-in-law Jennifer and granddaughter Kayla and Lt. Pat Santangelo all attended the festivities.

The afternoon was filled with activities which included the Troop L TRT Team, Troop K K-9 demonstrations, the seat belt enforcer, a car from Citgo Gas and a concrete demonstration. The children were encouraged to participate in many activities and everyone enjoyed watching the TRT Team repel down a building and “rescue” a child and take him back to the War Wagon to “escape”.

This is a yearly event for the Florida Turnpike District and everyone looks forward to the day.
