Kicking Cancer From Every Angle!

Kicking Cancer From Every Angle!
By: Michelle Weinmann
The fighters, supporters, survivors and volunteers will all be out rocking downtown Rugby and Harvey in the next couple of weeks with our local Relay for Life events. Rugby’s event is June 1st and Harvey’s is June 15th. The fight for cancer has been near to my heart since finding out my mother had cancer 12 years ago. But, she is a survivor and we continue to fight and support those around us who are continuing the battle or have fought and passed, like my uncle who we lost much too young. Relay for Life is a team effort that began in 1985 as a way to raise funds for American Cancer Society and brings the community together in a unified effort to fight cancer and raises awareness of the journey patients face as they fight the disease. Luminaries decorated and featuring the names of loves ones who have lost their battle with cancer, as well as survivors, are displayed on the walking path. The event is free to the public and family friendly. We want those involved; our volunteers, survivors, sponsors, everyone, to know by coming together and educating ourselves as a community we can help make great strides against this disease that in some way has touched us all. Our fundraising efforts are crucial to continue research efforts to find a cure as well as providing much needed services, such as rides to and from treatment and places for out of town patients to stay without financial burden, to those currently fighting for their lives in our community. In Harvey, our event is a Tri-County Relay event. We start out with our Community Meal (free-will donation) from 5:00-6:30 pm at the Armory. We will also have some games going, music, our Relay Store, silent auction bidding, selling of Luminaries, and team registration and team campsites set up. After the meal at 6:30 is the opening ceremonies. The Survivor Lap, Caregiver Lap and release of balloons is right at 7 pm. This year we are doing something a little different—we are having a Little Miss Relay Pageant. This is going to be a lot of fun for the little girls! They can dress up, get their nails painted by the cheerleaders, have a little program and get a tiara. We also have a new event this year—a wine-tasting at 8:30 along with some more games that I will be helping with. Some of the fun we have planned include a Cake Walk—which we are looking for donations of cakes. If you want to help, please let Michelle Weinmann know. It’s a great way to get involved. Also we will be doing Bed Races! This is with hospital beds with wheels. We are looking for teams to register and there will be prizes for Best time and Best décor. Yes, you will want to decorate your teams bed if you are able. Other fun activities going on will be a watermelon eating contest, frozen T-shirt contest and a kid friendly Scavenger Hunt. Prizes will be awarded! At 10 pm is our Lighting of Luminaries and at 10:30 is our Luminaria Ceremony or “Reading of Names". If you have been to a past event, you will remember seeing all the bags lit honoring or memorializing those that have survived or fought and passed because of cancer. The bags will be sold at the relay and around town prior to the Relay. We have them available here at the agency in Harvey. They are $5 or whatever you would like to donate. You can buy as many bags as you would like. The final lap and ceremony concludes at 12 am. We hope to see everyone out supporting our community and continuing the fight!

Employee Spotlight

Employee Spotlight
Nuline Insurance is expanding again, which means gaining another great employee! Say hello to Burton Kelly! Burt will be located in our new Maddock office, which is located in the Business & Technology Center in downtown Maddock.
Let us tell you a little bit about Burt. He grew up in Circle, MT and grew up farming with his large family. Burt is one of eleven children. After graduating from Circle, Burt then served our country by joining the United States Marine Corp.
After his time served in the Marines, Burt moved to Benson County and married wife, Bonnie. Together they have three children, two of which graduated from Harvey High School. Burt started his insurance career in 1997 and was an agent for Nodak Mutual Insurance for 13 years. NuLine recently opened an office in Maddock, ND, in which Burt will be located. Burt said the best thing about the insurance business is the rewarding feeling of helping our customers. When he is not working, Burt helps the community in other ways. He is no stranger to work and is always willing to jump right in and help fellow farmers. He always enjoyed farming and won’t think twice about helping anyone out. Burt also is an assistant coach for Harvey’s Little Stingers youth football program. He can usually be “heard" from the sidelines helping shape the young boys of our community. Burt also likes to relax by socializing with friends on the weekend.
Burt brings many skills to our agency, but most of all his big heart. He always puts the customer first and that is a quality we look for in our employees. Please help us welcome Burt to our team! We are so happy to have him aboard!

Hello Maddock!

NuLine Insurance is always evolving and changing, and in an effort to bring our local communities better products and services, we have recently expanded to Maddock, ND. Our 3rd office opened this May! Our office is located in Maddock’s Business and Technology Center. NuLine would like to welcome all of Maddock and the surrounding area to stop down, say hello and check out our new office. The new location will allow us to expand our insurance base and offer the existing Maddock area customers the same great service we currently provide. This would include our advanced technology systems and means of communication, like web and social media. Being an Independent Agency, we are able to give area residents additional options and choices when it comes to their insurance needs. Sometimes in a small town there are not many options and in order to have variety, it requires going further, whether it be out of town or online. We can help take the hassle out of shopping around as we represent many different carriers and do all lines of insurance. Our staff and team are thrilled to be a part of this venture, which includes our management and administrative staff, licensed agents, and CSR’s (customer services representatives). We especially look forward to having an active role in the community activities. With NuLine starting out in Harvey in 1966, and then adding our Rugby office, we have been built on being community minded and are always willing to help out in any way we can. Our entire team at NuLine are rural people that come from an agricultural background. We know how important it is to be involved and to keep the smaller communities thriving. We are also excited about some of the changes we have made to the new office. We have started with new paint, flooring, furniture and décor. With the fresh new look and being located in such a nice, professional business center, we are thrilled for this opportunity.

Schools out for summer -Schools out for ever!

For some, this may be a true statement. Graduation is a celebration of moving on to the next chapter in your life, whatever that may be. When preparing for an open house, you need to ask yourself a few questions.
What if your teen asks you to supply booze? What if there’s an accident on your property? What if someone drives drunk? Can you be held responsible? Party hosts should make sure they have adequate homeowners insurance to cover any injury sustained by a guest. Some things to look for on your homeowners policy; liability coverage may help pay for medical bills as a result of injury. It may also help cover the cost of a settlement against you. A personal umbrella policy, which is optional, may help provide greater liability. No one wishes for an accident to occur at their residence, but it always a good idea to be prepared and knowledgeable about what your home policy does cover. Below are some additional tips to keep handy.
1. Lock up all valuables like jewelry, money, firearms, electronics, prescription medications, keys, and your pets (even well behaved ones).
2. Require all guests to sign in to a guestbook.
3. Limit the number of guests in the home at one time/close off rooms.
4. Do a walk through for any items that could be tripped over or cause liability issues to arise inside & out. (ie. Landscaping, loose rails)

Camping Breakfast Burrito

Why the Poppy?

Memorial Day is almost upon us. We may be seeing people wearing poppy flowers, but do you know why?
The poppy flower is a symbol of remembrance. It was inspired by the WWI poem “In Flanders Fields". Its opening refers to the many poppies that were the first flowers to grow in the churned up earth of soldiers graves. In 1924, people were faced with a shortage of poppies. To fill the shortage, the first artificial poppy factory was created in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It employed veterans who needed work. Memorial Day is a significant day set aside for us to remember all American soldiers who have died while serving in the military. Make sure that we all take a moment to thank those people who have given their lives, so that you could have yours.

Dorothy…..We’re Not in Kansas Anymore!

Dorothy…..We’re Not in Kansas Anymore!
Have you ever wondered what you would do if a tornado hit while you were camping? Its not like the movies where they pick up your home or RV and set it back down. They can hit without notice, so you may not have much time. Being prepared ahead of time may save your life. If you are at a campsite and they have a recreation building or a laundromat, that would be the safest place to go. Some campsites have designated tornado shelters, so it would be a good idea to learn where those are ahead of time. Do Not plan on staying inside your tent or RV. Grab only essentials within reach, and don’t go searching for anything. If you are tenting and there are no buildings around, find the lowest ground somewhere, such as a ditch. Watch out for flying debris, which causes more injuries and deaths than the actual tornado. After the storm, assume all downed wires are live and avoid them. Take pictures of any damages for your insurance company so a claim can easily be turned in .

It’s All Fun and Games, Until Someone’s Marshmallow Catches Fire!

It’s All Fun and Games, Until Someone’s Marshmallow Catches Fire!

Well, it’s May and that means getting the mothballs out of the RV! But that’s not all you need to do to prepare your home away from home for all the summer fun. We went straight to the source with one of our local dealers, Rugby Homes and RV Center to find out more. They advised the best way to retain the value of your campers/RV is to keep it polished and clean. Keeping it stored inside is the absolute best. Rugby Homes can also assist with any repairs you need to get the season started. According to one of our carriers checklists, you should start with a thorough inspection of the body for any cracks or separation. This step is very important as it could cause major body damage if not properly cared for. Look inside for any stains on the ceiling, which indicates a roof leak. Also look beneath the body for any signs of fuel or fluid leaks. Batteries should be checked and connections cleaned. Lug nuts should be made sure they are secure and tires should be checked for cracks. Look for insect or rodent nests and chewed wires and hoses. Don’t forget about the safety items inside, like batteries in smoke/CO2 detectors, fire extinguishers and your emergency kits. Rugby Homes can also offer advice on winterizing and de-winterizing your campers and RV’s. If your camper looks like the one on the front page, you can also talk to one of their salespeople about an upgrade! When it comes to insuring your unit, the insurance rates are generally based on the value of the unit, which is why you want to talk with your agent about what amount is listed on your policy. Sometimes items are overlooked, like personal property replacement for items like awnings or satellite dishes. Or maybe you need to extend premise liability to your camping lot? If you tow your camper often, you may want to look at adding towing & labor. Some carriers offer safety glass replacement as those RV windshields can cost a pretty penny. NuLine is here for whatever questions you may have. We hope all our insureds have a fun and enjoyable season in 2018 and are free from any weather events. Try out one of our favorite games this year, campfire charades, it’s always a blast! And remember our favorite saying, “what happens around the campfire, stays at the campfire!"
