Posted on: June 23rd, 2017 by Agent Mark No Comments


19092834_1358581290844502_3108182450052979758_oLast week Team Herlihy members Colleen, Meagan and Molly spent the week in Grand Goave Haiti at Brit’s Home.

The Be Like Brit organization was established in memory of Britney Gengel who perished in the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Britney was in Haiti on a service trip with her school. For the full story of Brit’s Home you can go to

Since a picture is worth a thousand words and I cannot find adequate words to describe our week, I suggest you take a look at the pictures if you are interested in our week’s adventures.

The dedicated staff at Brit’s Home provided us with an incredible experience. The 66 Be Like Brit’s children who reside at Brit’s Home kept us smiling, laughing and wondering throughout our entire visit.

Our home building project was fulfilling. We have all decided that we will not be changing careers for carpentry and we have a new found respect for trades people! We are also extremely grateful for the limitless patience that our onsite carpenters had with us.

This Mom had been living in a tin and tarp structure donated by her neighbors. Five of her six children had been sent to live with others as her previous shelter was not adequate for their family. She now has her children safely back with her.

Cherylann Gengel warmly hugged the mom and said, “No mother should be separated from her children”.

The tears flowed.

Team Herlihy invites you to visit the Be Like Brit webpage, follow them on Facebook and keep them in your prayers.

Thanks to ALL of the Be Like Brit people and our Team members who made our trip a memorable and rewarding experience. A special thanks to Cherylann for the dancing.

Now I know a lot of people do not think that insurance is WICKED GOOD and might be confused by this.    I know that many consumers  think of insurance as a bill they  pay for something they never get.

For many fortunate families and businesses that may be  true.  Then there are another group of families and businesses that have experienced insurance losses and know the benefit of  “wicked good”  insurance coverage and a “wicked good”  insurance advocate at claim time.

What makes us WICKED GOOD?

After more than 90 years, we are still a group of local insurance professionals providing “REAL” insurance protection to our clients.  Our goal each day is to meet or exceed our client’s expectations.  I must admit we are a much more diverse group in 2017 than we were in 1927!  Our agency diversity has  definitely enhanced our capabilities to meet our goals.

Herlihy Insurance Group is proud of its local roots and local insurance talent as well as our Team Herlihy commitment to our local community.

We thank our loyal clients for the opportunity to work with them and look forward to serving more of our neighboring family and businesses in 2017.

Just take it easy going by our billboard!!
