Well, as I find myself preparing to pack up, I thought I’d offer a helpful guide concerning #movinginsurance.

Most people don't know it, but homeowners/renters insurance doesn’t typically cover loss/damage to items in-transit, particularly important if you’re hiring movers!

Hurricane Henri is on its way. Follow the tips below to make sure you're prepared for the storm!
▪️Board up windows and glass doors with shutters or plywood to minimize damage from broken glass, in case of high winds.
▪️Move your car into the garage or some other place where it will be sheltered. If you don't have a garage, move it to higher ground, in case of flooding. Don’t forget to prepare your RV if a hurricane is headed your way.
▪️Bring outdoor furniture and potted plants inside. Anything that can be picked up by the wind and subsequently blown against your home should be secured ahead of time.
▪️Store your gas grill safely indoors and shut off the propane tank.
▪️Turn off the circuit breaker to your outdoor pool and remove the motor to prevent damage.
▪️Prune branches that might break off during the storm and either hurt someone or cause damage to your home or vehicle.
▪️Prepare your boat by tying down anything that can’t be removed such as tillers, wheels and booms. Use at least two anchors to anchor the boat down if the boat stays in the water.
▪️Rent or purchase an emergency generator, if feasible. A powerful storm can knock out power to your home for days, even weeks. With a generator, you can continue running your refrigerator and keep some lights on.

It's almost #BackToSchool already! Did you know riding in a bus is 70% SAFER than in a car? Let's make sure our little ones get safely on and off that bus as well.

Always slow down when bus lights are flashing yellow, which indicates it's about to stop. NEVER pass a bus with the "Stop" sign extended. Wait. Being a minute or two later to a destination isn't worth the potential life-changing consequences for a child or you.

Here are some more tips for parents and kids AT the bus stop, from your #GoodNeighbor Suzanne!

Don’t end up a lobster like me! It only takes the sun 15 minutes to permanently damage your skin, which can lead to skin cancer.

So remember my “20 & 2” rule: Apply sunscreen 20 minutes BEFORE going outside, and every 2 hours AFTER every application, sweating, or swimming.

Take this seriously! 1 in 5 Americans will have #skincancer in their lives.

What happens if you’re stuck with a dead battery? There is one correct way to safely jump start your car, without damaging the vehicles or jeopardizing your own safety.

See below for your #GoodNeighbor Suzanne’s definitive step-by-step guide for jump starting a dead battery properly, and for a handy infographic that you can save to reference, or share with family and friends, see here: tinyurl.com/suzannejump

1. Preparation
Don’t attempt to use jumper cables if either vehicle has an electronic ignition system or is an alternatively fueled vehicle as this may damage the car.
Pull the working vehicle close to, but not touching, the stalled one.
Turn off ignitions in both cars.
Put both vehicles in park or neutral.
Engage emergency parking brakes.
Pop hoods.
Put on safety glasses.
Remove any terminal covers.
Wipe or wire-brush dirty terminals.
Don’t jump a leaky or frozen battery.
Don’t let cable clamps touch.
Don’t reverse the polarity (connecting positive + to negative -) or damage may occur.

2. Attach jumper cables
Grab the clean, corrosion-free jumper cables you keep in your vehicle or ask a fellow motorist for a pair.
Begin at the dead battery. Attach a red clamp to the positive + terminal.
Next, move to the working battery. Attach the other red clamp to the positive + terminal.
Attach the black clamp to the negative - terminal.
Attach the last black clamp to an unpainted metal surface on the stalled car, preferably the engine block, cylinder head or other chassis ground.
Start the working vehicle and let the engine run a few minutes.
Try to start the dead vehicle.

3. Remove cables
While the engine is running:
Disconnect the black clamp first, then disconnect the red.
Don't let the clamps touch each other while any cables are still connected to the cars.
DO NOT shut the engine off. Let it run for 15 minutes to recharge the battery.

4. Battery still dead?
Recheck the clamp connections.
Run the working vehicle again.
Try to start it again.

If that still doesn’t work, that’s where our Emergency Road Service coverage comes in handy!

Aren’t sparklers the best? But be safe! These little sticks burn at 1,200°F. That’s hotter than a bonfire.

Never put finished sparklers down in dry grass, on your deck, or any other flammable surface! Always keep an eye on the kids and keep a bucket of water near you to dispose of the used sparklers.

Follow your #GoodNeighbor Suzanne for more fireworks safety!

The pools are reopening and it’s a perfect time for me to remind you to be water smart! Some #poolsafety reminders- Always supervise children at ALL times around water! Everyone- event adults and experienced swimmers- should avoid swimming alone. Try to avoid swimming where lifeguards are not present while at community areas, and if you’re in a home pool, always have a “water watcher” when kids and adults are swimming.

Happy dips! From your #GoodNeighbor Suzanne

Happy #Juneteenth! By the way, just 4 days ago, the Senate unanimously passed the bill that would recognize June 19 as a Federal holiday, commemorating Emancipation in the United States. The holiday originated in Texas, with celebrations dating back as early as 1866.

If you’d like to read the plaque, your #GoodNeighbor Suzanne has placed it below:

COMMEMORATED ANNUALLY ON JUNE 19TH, JUNETEENTH IS THE OLDEST KNOWN CELEBRATION OF THE END OF SLAVERY IN THE U.S. THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION, ISSUED BY PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN ON SEP. 22, 1862, ANNOUNCED, “THAT ON THE 1ST DAY OF JANUARY, A.D. 1863, ALL PERSONS HELD AS SLAVES WITHIN ANY STATE...IN REBELLION AGAINST THE U.S. SHALL BE THEN, THENCEFORWARD, AND FOREVER FREE.” HOWEVER, IT WOULD TAKE THE CIVIL WAR AND PASSAGE OF THE 13TH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION TO END THE BRUTAL INSTITUTION OF AFRICAN AMERICAN SLAVERY.

AFTER THE CIVIL WAR ENDED IN APRIL 1865 MOST SLAVES IN TEXAS WERE STILL UNAWARE OF THEIR FREEDOM. THIS BEGAN TO CHANGE WHEN UNION TROOPS ARRIVED IN GALVESTON. MAJ. GEN. GORDON GRANGER, COMMANDING OFFICER, DISTRICT OF TEXAS, FROM HIS HEADQUARTERS IN THE OSTERMAN BUILDING (STRAND AND 22ND ST.), READ ‘GENERAL ORDER NO. 3’ ON JUNE 19, 1865. THE ORDER STATED “THE PEOPLE OF TEXAS ARE INFORMED THAT, IN ACCORDANCE WITH A PROCLAMATION FROM THE EXECUTIVE OF THE UNITED STATES, ALL SLAVES ARE FREE. THIS INVOLVES AN ABSOLUTE EQUALITY OF PERSONAL RIGHTS AND RIGHTS OF PROPERTY BETWEEN FORMER MASTERS AND SLAVES.” WITH THIS NOTICE, RECONSTRUCTION ERA TEXAS BEGAN.

FREED AFRICAN AMERICANS OBSERVED “EMANCIPATION DAY,” AS IT WAS FIRST KNOWN, AS EARLY AS 1866 IN GALVESTON. AS COMMUNITY GATHERINGS GREW ACROSS TEXAS, CELEBRATIONS INCLUDED PARADES, PRAYER, SINGING, AND READINGS OF THE PROCLAMATION. IN THE MID-20TH CENTURY, COMMUNITY CELEBRATIONS GAVE WAY TO MORE PRIVATE COMMEMORATIONS. A RE-EMERGENCE OF PUBLIC OBSERVANCE HELPED JUNETEENTH BECOME A STATE HOLIDAY IN 1979. INITIALLY OBSERVED IN TEXAS, THIS LANDMARK EVENT’S LEGACY IS EVIDENT TODAY BE WORLDWIDE COMMEMORATIONS THAT CELEBRATE FREEDOM AND THE TRIUMPH OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT.

Our Why

Growing up in Sea Cliff, I had a wonderful State Farm agent who was a Good Neighbor in every way and a great role model. After his retirement, I was chosen as the new agent in my hometown and maintained my office there until moving to my current location in Glen Cove a little more than 10 years ago. Over the last 31 years, much has changed but my team and I still pride ourselves on providing the very best service to our policyholders. Working hard here at the office everyday is our team leader, Margaret Rubin, customer service representative Debi Shortell, account executive, Mary Rodriguez and office representative Charles Gould. Our office is conveniently located on Cedar Swamp Road in Glen Cove and we also serve the neighboring communities of Glen Head, Glenwood Landing, Upper Brookville, Old Brookville and Muttontown.
