Curtis Insurance celebrates 65th anniversary with appreciation event

May 08, 2013

To help celebrate 65 years in business, the Curtis Insurance Agency (25 N. Washington St.) in downtown Oxford will host a Community Appreciation Day on Friday, May 10 from 2-6 p.m.

The event will feature snacks, beverages, an i-Pod Touch giveaway and an artistic demonstration by Dusty Elder, who will show off his unique talent for paper-cutting.

“We’re inviting past customers, current customers, future customers, friends, family, essentially the whole town, to celebrate with us because when there is something worth celebrating, we should,” said Greg Clay, co-owner of Curtis Insurance.

A ceremonial ribbon-cutting will occur at 4 p.m. with a variety of local officials and dignitaries taking part.

Founded in 1948 by Ralph R. Curtis, the Curtis Insurance Agency has grown to be a prominent, mid-sized agency in northern Oakland County.

“Our customers are like family,” said Curtis Insurance Agent Kathy Hoeflein. “Everyone gets special attention. It’s the main reason I love working here.”
