Local food. Local theater. Local products. We’re paying more and more attention to things that come directly from our own communities. Why shouldn’t your insurance agent be local, too?
Everyone hates feeling like a number, and we promise never to make you feel that way. We’re local. We live here, in the same community that you do. We understand the unique dangers that face our town: How the backroads tend to curve sharply, or how slippery that hill outside of town can be in the winter. Our understanding makes it easier for us to help you avoid needing to make a claim in the first place or how to clean up afterwards.

Remember tonight Longwood Gardens will be hosting fireworks as well as there “Light” feature throughout the gardens! “Wander through a field of light reminiscent of flowers, discover a meadow of glowing towers changing hues, and delight in a shower of cascading raindrops fashioned from delicate lights as you are immersed in a new and truly unique garden experience. Both indoors and outdoors, by day and by night, Light! will change the way you see gardens.” For more information visit www.longwoodgardens.org. I will leave you with a picture I recently shot in Black&White of our beautiful town of West Chester!
