These Tips for a Stress-Free Holiday Weekend
Memorial Day is one of the most important holidays in the United
States, offering the opportunity to slow down and practice gratitude
for the men and women who have gave the greatest sacrifice so we can
enjoy our freedom.To honor them, many of us use the long weekend to
gather friends and family together. Here are some tips to keep your
·Over The Barbecue: Keep
a fire extinguisher on hand. Make sure that one person is always
tending to the barbecue when it’s hot (your own personal "Fire
Marshall") To avoid food poisoning, make sure food is kept cold
until it goes on the grill. Once there, it should be heated to at
least 165 degrees to kill bacteria.
·In The Pool: Before you welcome people into your pool,
it’s important that you double-check that your water is clean and
balanced. Then, make sure there is always an adult supervising any
children swimming in the pool. Keep lifesaving devices such as
floatation devices, a phone and reaching poles poolside.
holiday weekend means increased traffic. Stay safe by giving people
plenty of following space, breaking up long car trips with frequent rest
periods, always turning on your headlights at dusk and in poor
weather, and stowing your cell phone to avoid distractions.
We hope you find a meaningful way to celebrate
this Memorial Day weekend. We want to send our sincere thanks to the
family members of all of the men and women who have lost their lives
serving our country. If you have any personal insurance needs please

Cleaning our closets for "Good"
Spring is the time of year where everyone gets in a
cleaning/organizing mood. So we decided what better than to clean out
our closets for a good cause. Everyone here at Apollo got in the
cleaning mode and together we were able to donate over 200 pieces of clothing/accessories/shoes
for families in the Chino area.
We donated everything to the Chino Neighborhood House, a local
charity that provides food and clothing to underprivileged families.
Luis Calvo, the Director of the organization drove over to our office
to pick up the donations He was so pleased and overwhelmed at
our generosity. He explained that they do not resell the clothing
like some organizations do. They make sure that everything is given
away to those in need. We are so proud to do our part in supporting
them in helping the community.
Winter may be most known for its treacherous driving conditions, but
spring also can be a difficult season for driving. From wind and
glare to wildlife emerging from hibernation, spring driving can be
challenging in its own right.
It is possible to enjoy the ride, however. By being aware of possible
obstacles and increased traffic, you can take care when driving to
ensure you and your passengers arrive safely and securely.
While you're driving, keep an eye out for pedestrians, especially on
warm days. Residential, shopping and recreational areas will have
more pedestrians, so it's especially important to be aware of those
who are walking.
Two-wheeled vehicles also increase in popularity in the spring, so
keep an eye out for motorcycles and bicycles and share the road.
Bicyclists have the same rights as other vehicles on most roads. In
particular, watch out for motorcycles and bicycles at intersections
and in your blind spots when you are turning, passing or merging.
Spring is often the time when road work begins or resumes, so expect
construction. Pothole repairs, highway maintenance and other road
repairs may slow your drive and, quite possibly, tax your patience.
Stay calm, slow down and be aware of the conditions around you. Be
especially careful driving through work zones. Increase your
following distance and avoid distractions.
If you are taking a vehicle or trailer out of storage, have your
mechanic perform regular maintenance, including checking the fluid
levels, tire condition, lights, suspension and brakes. Doing so now
could help reduce the risk of a breakdown or an accident.
Deer, bears and other wild animals become more populous in the
spring, as the warmer weather brings animals out of hibernation. Be
alert for wildlife in the road, and slow down so you can stop safely
if animals are on or near the road.
If your spring plans include a road trip, plan your driving route to
avoid having to drive late at night. If you are traveling with
another licensed driver, take turns behind the wheel to avoid road
fatigue and get to your destination safely.
Spring is a season of renewal, and it also can be a season of fun
driving. Stay alert and be prepared to avoid the challenges of spring
driving and make the most of the season. And if you haven't checked
your auto insurance policy lately, now may be a good time to do so.
