Local First Alliance vs. The Month of April

Spring is here (sort of)! And with spring come April showers…and then there is flooding.

Not to worry, Local First Alliance has you covered with A.B. Gile insurance, just one of our many amazing local business service providers. Located and founded in Hanover, A.B. Gile has been serving their Upper Valley clients since 1871. They can help you navigate through the tricky world of FEMA National Flood Insurance and recommend the perfect policy for your home, apartment, car, or business.

When they aren’t spending all their time making sure you have the best coverage, A.B. Gile is donating to over 75 local nonprofits like Northern Stage, Lebanon Opera House, and the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl. Because they call the Upper Valley home, they take care to reinvest in the community we all care about.

If April flooding isn’t enough for you, lets not forget it’s tax season! If you’re one of those people who likes to wait until the last minute or maybe you have a complicated business to reconcile, we have just the man for you. Local First Alliance member John Ring CPA is an IRS registered tax preparer who has called the Upper Valley home for more than 40 years. Raised in Claremont and an 11th generation Northern New Englander, John makes a point to shop locally, live sustainably, and reinvest in his community. “Local First Alliance matches my beliefs as a local,” he says. John Ring specializes in representing both individuals and locally owned, family businesses. 

Remember, when you are shopping for goods or services, think Local First. We have a searchable member directory full of businesses that can help with any challenges a New England spring can present.

It’s also important to remember that with April showers come May flowers…and then it’s summer.
