Well, NBDC has asked us to create a web presence for this new service and we are happy to do so! As NBDC already has a “look” on the web, the site needed to reflect that and remain within those boundaries.
We love working with Chris Gaddis, NBDC’s Financial Services Investment Consultant and a great local guy, and Andrea Paternoster, NBDC’s Vice President, Marketing and Business Development.
What a great Company and great people! We are pleased to have Midrox Insurance Company in Roxbury chose CMS to create a new and more functional website for them. The site launched today, January 27, 2011.
The new site allows users to learn about Midrox and all the insurance products offered and find a local agent from their very large network. We are using a feature-rich mapping program with awesome mash-ups and individual maps for each agent. This is our favorite upgraded functionality of the site. The site will also soon allow insureds to make a payment on-line; just waiting for the payment acceptor and it is ready to go.
Midrox has some cool history in our area and is staffed people real people that care-just like it used to be in the good old days! From Midrox’s website – “Midrox was chartered on May 26, 1939 by Chauncey F. Morse and his son, Harrison C. Morse. The company was then known as the Midrox Co-Operative Fire Insurance Company. Shortly after World War II, Lindon B. Morse, another son of Chauncey Morse, became involved in the insurance business. During the course of the next several years, up to the present, Midrox merged with several other similar but smaller companies, retaining the name of Midrox, which is shortened from Middletown-Roxbury Co- Operative Fire Insurance Company. In July of 1987, two of the smaller companies in the office, the Delhi Insurance Co. and the Andes Mutual Fire Insurance Co. were merged with the Midrox Co-Operative Fire Insurance Company, and in June of 1988, the remaining company, the Bovina Co-Operative Fire Insurance Company merged. The surviving corporation became known as the Midrox Insurance Company.
The Midrox Insurance Company has been located at many locations within Roxbury, including Chauncey Morse’s residence, the Golden Seal Building, a former church, former butcher shop and the new location, south of the village.
Midrox boasts a friendly and cooperative staff coupled with excellent claims service.”
We at CMS are happy to announce the completion of the project. The President of the Historical Society, Diane Galusha, worked very hard to gather all the content and wonderful photos that make this website very informative for residents and visitors alike. If you are history buffs like we are, you will love this site. The rich and vibrant history of Middletown tells such a wonderful story-a story many may not know.
HSM board member Joanie Merwin designed the site with Diane and we put it all together.
HSM is holding their Annual Meeting and Luncheon today, October 23rd, followed by “Songs America Voted By: Campaign Songs of the 19th-Century,” a musical program by Linda Russell. All of this is at LaCabana Restaurant, Main St., Fleischmanns. Program (1:30 p.m.) is free and open to the public, made possible with the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the New York State Legislature, and the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
We have mentioned that we are working on new websites and strategies for two Historical Societies in the area.
The Hobart Historical Society is full steam ahead and we should have a completed site up soon!
The new site is going to showcase not only the re-painting and restoration of their building at 57 Cornell Avenue, but also will have genealogy information for the area cemeteries, really great photo galleries and articles from way back when, plus the new “Historic Half Hours” that are presented each month.
The Hobart Historical Society wants to come together with the community and continue to preserve it’s past and preserve the present since today’s present is tomorrow’s history!
This is a great honor for us to be involved in projects that are so close to our heart (yes, we are history geeks), and the hearts of the individuals who tirelessly maintain this important historical archives.
