• Upstate Agency, LLC Celebrates 40 Years in Schroon Lake

    Upstate Agency, a subsidiary of Arrow Family of Companies, is celebrating 40 years of service to residents and businesses in Schroon Lake.
    The local agency, established in 1981, originally in the Freidman Real Estate office, moved to its present location at 1072 Route 9 in 1983. To show its appreciation to local residents, Upstate staff recently celebrated with a Coffee Takeover at Stewart’s that included free coffee and giveaways. Another Coffee Takeover will be scheduled for the Fall.
    “Our commitment to Schroon Lake and the surrounding area is strong, and we look forward to many more years helping friends, neighbors and business owners with insurance products and services that help them protect what matters the most to them,” said Kevin O’Brien, Senior Vice President.
    A large furniture donation to the Schroon Lake Community Church, which suffered a devastating fire in January 2019, is another way Upstate Agency supports the Schroon Lake community. A desk used by many company CEO’s over the decades will serve as the church’s new altar and the conference table will be the center of the new meeting room. Additional furniture donations were selected by members of the church to help furnish the rest of the building.
    Upstate Agency Insurance is also supporting the Schroon Lake School District to launch their free summer camp in partnership with the Glens Falls YMCA. The camp will offer increased academics for students to overcome both the COVID and summer gap, as well as provide healthy activities to improve the mental and physical health of students.
