Read to Ride Program Updates
We’re Two Months Into the Read to Ride Program!
If you missed the announcement in our last newsletter, we launched the Read to Ride program with the help of the Goderich Public School’s grade 3/4 class, taught by Ms. Jordanna Logan.
Recently, the class was awarded their first pizza party for completing 500 hours of collective reading!
Students receive one ballot into the grand prize draw for every 5 hours of reading they complete. The more each student reads, the more chances they have to win! The grand prize draw for one of two new bicycles will take place at the end of the program on June 1st.
Stay tuned; we will soon be looking for school nominations for our Read to Ride program this fall.
Tips for Maintaining your Sump Pump
April showers bring May flowers, but they also bring flooded basements.
The Intact Centre at the University of Waterloo reported in 2019 that flooded basements were the biggest climate-related change being faced by Canadians. It should come as no surprise that broken sump pumps are a leading cause of water damage; in fact, they have been one of our most frequently cited claims for years.
Over on our blog, we’re sharing tips for maintaining your sump pump and extending its life. Or watch our video for more information.

It’s Jersey Day or Dylan Shervill
The Excalibur Insurance team continues to grow! After hosting half a dozen Jersey Days over the last eight months, we have reached the end of our ceremonies (for now)!
If you are new to our newsletter, Jersey Day is an Excalibur tradition where new team members receive their official jersey after their first three months on the job.
Last month, Dylan Shervill received his Excalibur hockey jersey, complete with his last name on the back and the last two digits of the year he joined our team.
Staying Insured While Moving Homes
The housing market is on fire right now! With so many people looking to leave major cities and relocate to the suburbs or the countryside, moving trucks and movers are in high demand.
So we answer a frequently asked question: are your belongings still insured when they’re on the moving truck?
Defender Spotlight – Cathi Cullen
April’s Defender Spotlight shines on Cathi Cullen in our Clinton office!
2022 has been a big year for Cathi Cullen! On February 1st, Cathi celebrated 45 years of working at Excalibur Insurance, and March 27th marked her 70th Birthday.
Cathi is our go-to person for all things Farm and Commercial and has been working in that department for about 15 years now.
Each day she comes to work with her great sense of humour, endless generosity, and warm, caring personality.
No matter the milestone, we’re grateful to have Cathi as part of the team!
