On July 1, 1967 Bowers Schumann and Welch was born.   It was destined to become a leading insurance agency  in North Jersey Eastern Pennsylvania, employing 100 people.  It was a special place by almost anyones definition. It had humble beginnings and humble founders, of which was my father was one . You can tell from his message on the front page of this newsletter he loved the people who were associated with the company. He was so thankful to have the opportunity to lead such a great organization. He was a rare find in those times. Looking back  the culture he created seems even more important in these times  of ramped corruption.

The philosophies created here were the foundation for the Trust Tour.  I loved this company almost as much as dad.  Today would have been it’s 45th birthday.  With that in mind I would like to honor the legacy of his great company  with a reminder of how the “Wx Carx” newsletter got it’s name.  It is based on the belief each one of us is important, no matter how small the contribution. I hope you will enjoy and pass this on to others!
