#ThisIsHerrin

Our #ThisIsHerrin spotlight is focused on Saliba Insurance Agency, Inc.

Saliba Insurance has been a member of the Herrin Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years!

They offer Business Commercial, Home, Auto, Life & Health Insurance. They also have a staff member certified with the Federal Marketplace (Healthcare.gov) dedicated to help with Individual Health Insurance & Medical Supplements.

Saliba Insurance takes pride in working for the client! Offering a vast array of providers and ensuring their client’s needs are met is what they attribute to their success. By being involved in the community is how they can get to know their clients. They consider themselves successful when their client is happy.

We are an independent Insurance Agency, locally owned by the same owner since 1963. Albert Saliba started his own business in the basement of home almost years ago! We take pride in providing great customer service! We accommodate our hours to fit your needs. As an independent insurance agency, we don’t have an affiliation with any specific insurance provider. Because we do not work for one specific company, we aren’t biased! Instead, we can provide you with the accurate information you need to make informed decisions about your family’s coverage.

They act as a broker, or a middleman, between our insurance carriers and our clients, keeping your best interests as their top priority!

Saliba Insurance believes it is very important to invest their time and money into the Chamber to aid in the advancement of our community’s economic well-being. Being part of the Chamber is a great way to network, receive educational benefits, and get involved with the community.

Lisa Lukens has been a board member of the Chamber for over 15 years. She has assisted with many fundraisers throughout the years and continues to do so.

**Wacky Wednesday**

National Fresh Veggies Day There is nothing better than fresh veggies! Raw, steamed, baked. No matter how you cook them, they just taste so much better.

One of the best places to get fresh vegetables, especially in the summer months, is your local farmer’s market. Call your local chamber to find out about the possible farmer’s market in your area!
