If you are still feeling groggy from loosing your hour of sleep from spring forward in March, 2017, well this weekend you get it back.  As a friendly reminder, set your clocks back 1 hour on Sunday Evening before you go to bed.    I love the fall, and with the extra hour setback, the drives home from work in the evenings paint some of the most beautiful fall sunsets.

Time for a policy Review?

Family Smile

It is never too late to review your insurance program. Having the right policy is far more valuable than having the lowest premium. Often, the policy holder assumes more of the risks, in return for a slightly lower premium. We recommend, visiting your insurance agency annually to review and understand available coverages, endorsements, and deductibles.  You will be informed to make necessary changes that reflect your personal risk characteristics. Not all policies are the same, and your needs may change. Don’t delay, schedule this today.  Your Agency should welcome your request.
