Offered by: Melissa Rippy – Rippy Insurance Agency/Allstate

The month of November is a special one for the Melissa Rippy Agency as we celebrate nine years of business (November 1st) and are grateful to still be here for our clients and our community. Thank you for your continued business, support and trust to protect what matters most.

November 1st we are also hosting another blood drive at the Brighton Pavilions. We have a limited number of slots available and you can register at with Blood Drive code 10360.

Also on November 1st, we will be heading back to Hughes Station with Elsie the Little Free Mobile Library. Then on November 10th, we will be having a ribbon cutting to celebrate Elsie’s new wrap, funded by our amazing community. We hope you can join us!

It’s also time for Pie & Grace. Grace Eleanor (Moline) Fletcher was one of my most favorite clients. Over the past several years, Grace would call me throughout the year to make sure we were still giving away pie at Thanksgiving for our clients. She would sign up to bring pie to her family gathering and was always planning ahead, no matter what month it may have been.

Grace passed away on November 2nd, 2020, and beginning in 2020 with the permission of Grace’s family, we renamed our pie giveway as “Pie & Grace”. Every year, we offer our clients their choice of a pumpkin or apple pie.

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on those around us and give thanks for the many blessings we have. This year and every year, don’t forget two things: Pie & Grace.
