So what the heck were Colleen and I doing there? Helping to support the wellness of it's employees, of course! The Counselor Supervisor organized a wellness fair for the employees of the CT Department of Corrections and I was very happy to be invited. We were on hand offering free real estate consultations and sharing information on buying, selling, investing and even renting. I always love the opportunity to educate the public about what a real estate agent can do for you and how investing in real estate can brighten your financial future no matter when you do it, so this was a great day at the "office" for me!
The wellness fair was held in the gym, which meant passing through security and entering the facility. After a brief hold up at the metal detector (think underwire bra), we were official "inside" The grey cinder block halls were dimly lit and we had to pass through several doors that had to be opened and closed with complicated key and camera systems. Hard to believe, I know, but it was my first time in prison! I thought it looked just like I expected it to from all the Lock Up Raw I've watched over the years on TV.
Once in the gym, we set up at tables and got ready to meet the facility's employees.
We had a great day chatting with everyone at Northern Correctional and overall it was an awesome experience.
Even the food was good!
