Turkey Drive Success

 turkey drive

The First Annual Turkey Drive was a huge success!! Thousands in donations were collected with the help of our wonderful community. In a great effort 4000 lbs of turkey, 2500 lbs of canned goods and non perishable goods were collected. Also, over $1,000 in cash and checks for the Salt Mine were donated. Even local teens had a hand in donating. The Frozen Turkey and/or Canned Goods were collected at the Safeway in Lincoln and at Firehouse #34 on Joiner Parkway. A lot of people worked very hard to make this happen, they even had a drive through drop off!

Thank you to our outstanding team of fire fighters, Lincoln CERT, Lincoln Rotary,  Angeion Consulting, and of course all the community of Lincoln who went above and beyond to help their neighbors. Thank you to the Salt Mine who will be doing the hard work of making sure that all of your generous donations go to those in need.

The Shrum boys also had a part in helping their hometown. The Lincoln community and surrounding areas participated in buying pumpkins to make their donation of Turkeys a success. The boys took money from their pumpkin sales and was able to purchase 45 turkeys and donated them to the 1st Annual Turkey Drive at the Lincoln Fire Department.  Thank you boys for your caring hearts and hard work!!

We are so pleased this event was such a huge success and we look forward to partnering with everyone next year!! Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holiday.

October Activites

We always participate in the Food Truck events every month put on by Downtown Lincoln!! We put in a lot of effort each month to help this run smoothly for everyone! 

A recap of this year’s October Food Truck event:
What do Zombies, pets in Halloween costumes, and delicious food have in common? They were all at this month’s Downtown Lincoln Food Truck Event! Lots of people came out and brought their cameras for the Zombie (LHS Drama Club) selfie. They brought their dogs (in costume) for the Pet Costume Contest & Parade (hosted by Fashion Fo Paws). Everyone really seemed to enjoy the beer truck, music, kid zone, & Dono Dal Cielo was there with wine too. Fun was had all around at this Halloween food truck event. 
                                                             

If you missed it make sure you mark your calendars for next year’s Halloween Food Truck Event!!

Disneyland Giveaway!!

Life gets pretty challenging at times. Work, school, obligations, stress!! With school just starting back up and everyone getting back into the swing of things we thought it would be fun to spice things up a bit. We put our heads together and thought what could we do to bring a little cheer to the people around us? So, we thought about our own memories of fun and wanted to give you the chance at making fun memories too…

We look forward to reaching out and providing a helping hand. Every year we try to find ways to give back, make a difference and engage in our community. Recently we participated in the Independence Day Parade here in Lincoln, CA.

The Independence Parade drew the biggest crowd ever! The streets were lined up to 10 people deep in some areas, all the way though the parade route. There were a variety of entries showing their Red, White and Blue spirit!

Children lined the streets with excitement waiting to see the floats, car’s and animals. The children grew even more excited every time they seen someone coming down the street that was passing out flags, necklaces or throwing candy their way. Oh, the memories they will have to look back on when they are older.

Lincoln is a great place to live and we pride ourselves in being a home based business. Community and family are very important and we love that you are apart of our family!!

A shout out to Debbie Brown Photography for the wonderful picture!! She is a gem in Lincoln and you can find her information at http://www.debbiebrownphoto.com/.

Lincoln Farmers Market

Come on out to see us at the Farmers Market in Lincoln. We are excited to be apart of such a great community! We will be set up in front of our office at  543 F Street in Downtown Lincoln.  There will be lots of fun and Free Otter Pops! We will have fun games for the kids and prizes too!

Also, when you stop by don’t forget to enter for a chance to Win a Free iPad!

Did you know the vendors at a Certified Farmers’ Market have been inspected by their local Agriculture Department.  Each farmer has a list of the products they grow on display in their sales booth. The produce is fresh, local, and direct from the local farms. Produce sold at a Certified Farmers’ Market is usually picked the morning of the market or, at the longest time, the night before. Just a few of the products there will be vegetables, fruits, eggs, cheeses, honey and lots of other produce.

So come out, have some fun, and support our town. Listen to music,  Purchase your family some healthy, fresh food from our local farmers. If we all stick together we can help keep our town a wonderful place to live.

We are out and about supporting the local businesses and hope that you are too! We love supporting our community and seeing all the decorations and smiling faces during the holiday season.

Happy Holidays from the Mertens Insurance Agency family!!
