In It’s a Wonderful Life, George Bailey discovers that giving back to your community makes all the difference in the world. This is a model that we at Carry Out Cafe try to follow, which is why we work with so many local organizations on events and volunteer our personal time to special causes.
We would also like to salute a longtime local business that embraces the community through its many programs: Chase and Lunt Insurance, the North Shore’s largest independent insurance company handling all types of personal and commercial insurance programs. We’ve catered numerous meetings, special events and fundraisers with the friendly folks at Chase and Lunt. They step up to assist so many worthy initiatives, events and organizations. As lead sponsor for bringing the HMS Bounty to Newburyport, they honored the maritime history of our region, while boosting tourism and helping the economy.
The can-do attitude for community efforts is reflected in their business as well. It’s no wonder that Chase and Lunt consistently rates as top insurance agency in Greater Newburyport and the North Shore in consumer polls. Plus, they are also the only Five Star rated agency in the entire Merrimack Valley.
We feel fortunate to live and work in such a culturally rich and economically thriving community. The generations that have come before us have left us with a valued treasure. A treasure of culture, history, natural resources, and economic viability. But the most valued treasure is the people that live here. It is the people that make the community. And this community is very special. We feel it is both our privilege and responsibility to continually support the initiatives that make our community a better place to live and do business. – From the Chase and Lunt Website
Watch for Chase and Lunt’s continued generosity as it will sponsor the upcoming Yankee Homecoming and (our favorite) the Waterfront Movie Series in August. Chase and Lunt Insurance and the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce present movies on a 40-foot screen at Waterfront Park. It’s a Wonderful Life is not one of the movies (wrong season), but this year’s family-favorite line-up includes:
* The Muppets – August 8
* Hairspray – August 15
* Madagascar – August 22
Thank you, Chase and Lunt, for all you do!!
