Bake Your Manager A Treat In Celebration of National Boss's Day!

Sunrise Senior Living  |  October 15, 2012

National Boss's Day is tomorrow, and seniors who are volunteering or working part-time may want to consider letting the special boss in their lives know that they're respected.

Although many older adults choose to leave the workforce in order to enjoy retirement to the fullest, there are still those seniors who prefer to work here and there as a hobby and a way to keep busy. Others may choose to get into a daily routine in order to pull in some extra money.

If you're still a part of the workforce for whatever reason, why not consider bringing in a baked good for the manager in your life? While cards and balloons are nice, giving a little something extra such as a sweet treat can be one way to really show you care.

If your boss has a sweet tooth, you can't go wrong with Sunrise's Coconut Macaroons. Not only are these cookies great to present to your manager, but they are great for sharing with the entire staff during the celebration.
