So much happened at S.J. Markham and Son, Inc this year! We celebrated our 100th year in business (isn't that amazing)! Did you miss anything? If any of this sounds unfamiliar, be sure to follow us on Facebook (@MarkhamInsurance), Twitter (@SJ_Markham), and LinkedIn.
We welcomed Michele to the team, who is now handling commercial accounts along with Michaela. Michele is perfect for our office because her favorite thing about working in the insurance industry is advising and counseling people. Meanwhile, Michaela celebrated her sixth anniversary, Emma celebrated her third, and Dottie celebrated her second!
Our office moved down the street to 435 Main Street, Suite 2050. The North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce and the Mayor of Fitchburg all came to our ribbon cutting celebration! If you haven't stopped by to see us in our new digs, you should. Now we have some snazzy prints from the Fitchburg Art Museum decorating the walls of our new office. There's also still free two-hour parking across the street, so you don't need to worry about finding quarters for the meter.
This year, we also partnered with The Sizer School in Fitchburg to aid their food pantry and, with the help of our amazing clients, we collected canned items to donate to them. We also gave The Sizer School a five hundred dollar donation to give back to children in need in our local community. The North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce even featured our drawing and canned food drive in one of their videos!
We continued with our drawings, including guessing how many pieces of candy are in our candy jar and reviewing us on Google and Facebook. What was our best drawing of 2019? That would probably be giving away Red Sox tickets!
We blogged about FAQs small businesses have, such as "How can I save money on my insurance?" and "What is the difference between a claims-made form and an occurrence form?" We reviewed the DRIVE Safe Act and what the research says about young truckers and safety. We looked at flood risk in New England, including what factors determine your risk. We also wrote about cyber security and easy ways to increase yours, and so much more.
Thank you for making this another great year!
