A 2017 Thanksgiving Message From Our President Heidi Petschauer

Thanksgiving Table

During this special time of year where we pause to give thanks, I begin this message with a very heartfelt thank you to my dad, the founder of Petschauer Insurance, John Petschauer. He always provided me with an opportunity to learn the insurance business as well as understand the importance of collaborating with others.

Because of my dad’s imparting wisdom, as leader of the Petschauer Insurance Team, I always focus on promoting everyone working together.  Everyone on our team has incredible strengths which are all unique and appreciated. Therefore, pooling our strengths truly promotes our values of always relating with honesty and integrity, so that we can continue to build trusting relationships with you – our valued clients.

So now, my heartfelt thank you goes out to our amazing Petschauer Team! They are always open and committed, as I was, to seeking every opportunity to learn and grow so that they can continue to keep you, your families and your businesses protected and feeling safe. I am truly blessed to have them as my Team!

To you: our clients, I am so grateful and appreciate your continued trust in us and the values we uphold.

I wish everyone and their families a very blessed, safe and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. May you all take this time to reflect on the many blessings in your life.

Petschauer Insurance’s Guide To A Happy And Safe Thanksgiving

The Thanksgiving holiday is an awesome opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends, enjoy great food, and create long-lasting memories! We want to ensure that you have the most enjoyable time you can. With that in mind, please allow us to share some great tips around safety and extracurricular activities to make this holiday a phenomenal one from start to finish!

Cooking Up A Great Meal: Preparing the turkey and all the tasty fixings is a big part of the Thanksgiving tradition. In an effort to help everything go smoothly, Travelers Insurance provides a fantastic guide of do’s and don’ts for cooking a successful meal, complete with smart cooking attire ideas and what to be mindful of in the kitchen. The company also provides reassurance by explaining what to do in the event of a fire.

Helping Your Pets Enjoy Thanksgiving: While you and your loved ones enjoy a great meal, your pets deserve to be treated to something good as well. Cooked turkey, sweet potato, and green beans will help them truly embrace the spirit of the holiday! However, as tasty as they may look, the ASPCA suggests that you keep the sweet treats away from your furry friends!

Thanksgiving Gifts That Keep On Giving:  Hosting Thanksgiving at your home will allow you to reap all the benefits of leftovers that last for days! In the spirit of rewarding the host for all of their efforts, Nationwide’s Thanksgiving blog outlines some very creative spins on a bevy of leftovers recipes that may make dinnertime easy for the foreseeable future: try stew, stuffed peppers, and plenty of finger food.

From football, to board games and pleasant conversations, the outstanding traditions often go far beyond the food. Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful and count our blessings, so we would like to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving filled with wonderful memories as you enjoy each other’s company.

10 Thanksgiving Fire Safety Tips

8210557842_4ffce3a8ac_zDid you know that on Thanksgiving Day the amount of kitchen fires are two times more likely to occur than on any other day of the year? That seems reasonable, as most of us are celebrating a holiday that resonates because of the amount of food preparation that takes place. That is why we want you to be prepared for the worst, while enjoying the holiday.

Here are 10 tips to keep in mind as the day of feasts approaches:

  1. Install a fire detector in or near the kitchen.
  2. Never leave the kitchen when frying or grilling food.
  3. Use a timer when cooking.
  4. If using a deep-fryer, keep the fryer outside, away from any walls.
  5. Avoid loose clothes or long sleeves while cooking.
  6. Make sure all candles around the house are securely placed.
  7. Keep kids away from cooking areas.
  8. Keep all flammable things – oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, towels – away from the stove top and oven.
  9. Keep the floors clear of any objects you may trip over.
  10. Make your fire extinguisher functions properly, and place in or near the kitchen.

We hope that you take these tips and put them to use while you prepare for Thanksgiving. Then, the only thing you will have to worry about is overeating. Have a wonderful holiday!
