Merry Christmas

December 21, 2018


From Our Family To Yours

“It’s been a great 2018 and everyone here at Mountaineer Insurance Services wants to wish all of our clients, friends and entire community a very Merry Christmas to each and every one of you.”



 Winter Solstice
Today (Friday, December 21) is the shortest day of the year, so take time to snuggle up with your family during these last few hectic days before Christmas. From this day forward, we’ll inch forward with longer days as we reach for the warm days of spring.

December Full Moon

Tomorrow (Saturday, December 22) is the Winter Solstice full moon. Referred to by Native Americans as the Full Cold Moon, this December’s full moon falls on the Winter Solstice. The last time this happened was in 2010, and the next time the Full Cold Moon will rise in full on Winter Solstice day will occur in 2094! What a special way to send off a wonderful year!


Closed Monday and Tuesday

Our offices will be closed Monday, December 24 and Tuesday, December 25 (Christmas Day). We will reopen on Wednesday, December 26. 

A nice compliment from the Mayor of Elkins, West Virginia, Van Broughton:
“Out and about the other evening. I drove by (the office of) Mountaineer Insurance Services, Inc. You and your people did a Great Job, Jonathan Kyle!  It looks BEAUTIFUL!”


A Good Word about a Good Deed from Angela Kyle

“I had the opportunity to spend the day (Wednesday, December 19) with an amazing Santa at George Ward Elementary School. First, let me say that he is such a blessing to our community. He never takes any money and he is ALWAYS so good with the kids.

Secondly, our teachers rock! They were so sweet to let us interrupt their day.

Third, Sasha Conrad is a superstar, super fantastic!

Forth, if you have a child that goes to George Ward, you should be very proud of your children. They were so polite, caring, and I must say… never, ever, have I heard so many kids ask for gifts for someone else and not themselves❤  You have done well!

These are some of my favorite things they asked for:

A real unicorn
A Drivers license
My Family to be happy
My Family who have passed away; that we could give them a gift
A baby sister ❤
One of your Reindeer
Can you get my dad a truck? He has a pretty crappy one right now.
A real pig for my teacher
Money for the poor
A new Mom – just joking the little girl said!
Just for my friends to be happy

To see the magic in these kids’ faces was something no one could forget. It was a great day. What good kids!!!

And comments from some of the teachers:

“Thank you for spending your day making sure all the students at George Ward got to see and speak with Santa today. Santa is always so wonderful with the students, too. He listens to each of them and makes them feel so special. My heart was full seeing the excitement and wonder in my students, eyes!”

“Thank you all!!!! The kids loved it! One of mine said they saw the elves again when they went to lunch!”


Merry Christmas everyone, and on to a Happy New Year!
