In May we celebrated moms and in June we celebrated dads. On July 28, we get to celebrate appreciation for parents all at once and why not? Parents play such a vital role in the lives of children. From the day children are born, you are protectors, teachers, providers and role models. And families are the core of Virginia communities we share.
For National Parents’ Day, our Northern Neck Insurance family would like to honor parents for all they sacrifice every day to raise up their children in a world that is constantly changing and sometimes challenging. So we asked our team members to share a photo and a sentence of wisdom from their daily lives and experiences protecting their own families. We hope to make you laugh out loud, maybe even bring a tear, but most of all, inspire and encourage you!
