Business Scene for the week of 11/14/18

GOING AWAY RECEPTION FOR MARA

Mara Beatty

After nearly eight years as a commercial insurance agent with Flanigan-Leavitt Insurance Agency, Mara Beatty is leaving the agency to spend more time with her husband, Darren, and their young children, Brayden, 8, and 17-month old Rayna. “Mara has played a major part in our effort to grow and service our clients. She will be sorely missed by our agency’s family,” commented Mike Flanigan, adding, “We’re committed to making sure the many business owners and other entities that she has helped over the years with their insurance needs will continue to receive that same level of service and commitment. We invite you to drop by the Quincy office between 2 and 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov, 15, to wish her well while enjoying some snacks and refreshments on us.”

AUTO REPAIR FINANCING AVAILABLE

Seeing a need and filling that void, Bryan and Joy Strecker, owners of Frank’s Garage in Quincy, now offer financing for auto repairs. It is available in two different plans: One is called Credit First and provides six-month same as cash financing for purchases of $149 or more on repairs and auto care. The other option they refer to as Square Installment Loans. It can be used on repair bills totaling $249 or with a three, six or 12-month repayment plan.

NEW NAME, SAME GREAT FOOD

AFTERNOON TEA IN WESTWOOD

Robert and Linda Hart, former owners of Little Norway Resort and the Coventry Gardens Restaurant in Susanville, have taken over the restaurant inside the historic Walker Mansion Inn in Westwood.
