Liquor Liability Insurance This Holiday Season

The holiday season is a time for festivities, for throwing up the décor and donning the Christmas tree with vibrant lights. What it isn’t time for is having to deal with the ramifications of a costly lawsuit because one of your guests drank too much and got into an accident when driving home, causing severe injuries and significant property damage. Even if your guest made the decision to get behind the wheel, the host has some liability when liquor is being served.

Enter liquor liability insurance, a unique form of liability insurance specifically designed to protect hosts from any liability claims they may face due to bodily injuries or property damage when alcohol is being served. You can learn more in this blog.

Read to Ride: Schools Announced – Winter 2024

Read to Ride Winter 2024 will be starting in February, and we’re excited to reveal the 3 classrooms that we will be working with:

• Grade 3 teacher Courtney LaPorte from Exeter Elementary School
• Grade 3/4 teacher Jessica Clark from North Easthope Public School
• Grade 4 teacher Tamara Dobos from Goderich Public School

We launched our Read to Ride program in 2022 with the goal of helping children sharpen their reading skills by encouraging regular practice with fun incentives (ballots, pizza parties, new bikes) along the way.

Ultimately, we hope the Read to Ride program helps children develop more confidence in their reading skills and themselves.
