New Agency Employee – Emily Dethlefs

Our office is happy to announce that our agency has recently hired another agent within our agency. Emily grew up on a ranch in the Hershey area and graduated from Hershey Public School. She then went on to graduate the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in May 2020 with a Bachelors degree in Child, Youth, & Family Studies with Minors in Education and Psychology. She has been working as a substitute teacher and the Director of the After School Program at Ansley Public Schools.

We are glad to have her as part of our team. Feel free to stop in the office to introduce yourself to her. She will be working part time in the office until the school year ends and then she will transition to a full-time agent.

Go, Go, Go to Your Boat

Warmer weather probably has you fondly looking out of your window. And if you own a boat, it has you thinking about a nautical journey.

Though many people love thinking about their boat, they hate thinking about insuring it.

Some think that their homeowners policy covers it, but this is only true of small boats like canoes. And a shocking amount of people have no insurance on their boat at all.

But never fear! Boat insurance is pretty easy to obtain. Look at the following to see how boat coverage protects you:

  • Liability – Just like your auto policy, boat coverage protects you from accidents you cause.
  • Physical Damage  – This pays for damage to your boat, motor, equipment, and trailer.
  • Medical Payments – If someone on your boat gets hurt, this helps pay for their medical coverage.
  • Unattached Equipment – Protects all of those valuable tools, gear, and equipment that isn’t physically attached to your boat.

Before you can say, “Trim the jib” you’ll be cruising on the water with confidence.

Summer is Almost Here

Whether you’re still bundling up for the occasional snow flurry or already feeling the heat, one thing is certain: Summer is almost here. And you know what that means: It’s time to break out the shorts, plan some vacations, and find your favorite sunglasses.  And for some, it can also mean a return to their favorite forms of exercise. We have you covered if you have been meaning to get back outside or have a new goal you’re looking to crush.

Try these tried and true tips for a radical return to the outdoors:

  • New Shoes — Still using your old worn-out sneakers from years ago? New shoes can protect your feet and help project you forward.
  • Realistic Goals — Rome wasn’t built in a day, after all! Start with a short, realistic goal to keep yourself focused.
  • People Power — It’s hard to find motivation sometimes. Why not try working out with a group for a little extra support?

Once you’ve tried these tricks, you’ll be jogging, hopping, and skipping around the neighborhood with style and swagger.
