Colonial Staff Enjoys Annual Bean Bag Tournament

After a very busy year thus far, our Colonial team enjoyed some downtime to partake in a little competitive fun at our Annual Bean Bag Tournament. We took advantage of a lovely day during the last of the Maine summer on our property at company headquarters in South Portland. It’s always a great Colonial family gathering, full of laughs, good food, and camaraderie. This year we were also joined by three of our catastrophic adjusters which served to enhance the team building outcome.

Our group of talented and committed staff never ceases to amaze me. I am so proud of every Colonial family member and the daily effort each puts forth, so it’s important to me that we also enjoy some relaxation and enjoyment together as well.

Congratulations to this year’s champions – Property Trainee, Scott Madden, and Senior Property/Casualty Adjuster, Andrea Smith!
