The Conclusion of an Incredible Season: Chris Fleming Racing

Simon’s Agency sponsored Chris “Showtime” Fleming pulled out all the stops in 2016 culminating in a repeat championship of the Billy Whittaker Cars & Trux RUSH Late Models at Fulton Speedway (NY). It was a tight point battle right through the final race on Saturday, September 3rd which Chris narrowly won in the 20-lap feature having taken the lead on lap 6 and battling repeated challenges from the field as well as a final lap “slide job” by rival Jason Parkurst which Fleming countered by pulling even on turn four as Parkurst struggled to contain his momentum, and drag racing to a photo finish. Fleming clinched his second championship, winning the race by the slimmest of 0.114 second margins. In only his second season of racing Chris has his fifth win of the season and second track championship overall.

An Interview with Racecar Driver Chris "Showtime" Fleming of Simon's Sponsored Chris Fleming Racing

For several years Simon’s Agency, Inc. has sponsored Christopher Fleming and the Chris Fleming Racing (CFR), and for the 2016 season became the lead sponsor of Chris’s car.  It was a chance meeting that brought Simon’s and Chris together. Phil Bova, CEO of Simon’s, was introduced to Chris by his friend, Carmen, at Tile & Carpet Town.  Phil “thought right away that he was a good kid and a talented driver” based on his first impression and the research he conducted on Chris and his team.

Ironically, Simon’s had been looking for ways to engage the local community and help people who were trying to excel in their dreams – be it sports or arts or education – and Chris fit the bill!

Giving Thanks this Holiday Season

As we find ourselves closing out November it’s hard to believe another year is about to fade into the sunset.  But before it does, the marvels of the holiday season begin to transition our world into a slightly surreal land of decorations, parties and bliss.  What better way to start this season than gorging ourselves on the sustenance of food and spirit?  Besides the obvious tradition of having your family and friends join you in surrounding a giant meal on Thanksgiving Day we also task ourselves with thinking about what we are thankful for and generally can find a moment of growth in doing so. 

Simon’s Celebrates and Raises Money for Local Charities with a Little Help from Our Friends

On the evening of October 20th Simon’s Agency opened its doors to the Central New York community and its clients with a celebration commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the agency and the grand opening of its brand new state-of-the-art call center in Liverpool.  

Ambassadors to Central New York Businesses

One of the many great aspects of our membership with CenterState CEO in Central New York is the Ambassador Program in which our local sales executives participate. CenterState CEO is a regional business leadership organization, chamber of commerce, and economic development strategist based in Syracuse, New York. Members of the Ambassador Committee attend a short monthly organizational meeting and then act as “goodwill” ambassadors who provide recognition and appreciation for local businesses. They attend special events and present a certificate of recognition for grand openings, ribbon cuttings, special events, and more. According to CenterState CEO’s Director of Member Services, Sharon Abert, “It’s a great opportunity to be able to celebrate businesses in our region who are deserving of recognition for all kinds of success. I, as well as the volunteers on the CenterState CEO Ambassador committee, are passionate about the recognition provided. It means an awful lot to a business owner or manager to have a group of these volunteers come in and extend congratulations, present a certificate and take a picture for an upcoming newsletter.”

Lest We Forget: A Call to Observe the National Moment of Remembrance this Memorial Day

As we head into Memorial Day weekend this year and venture off to our family clambakes, beach openings, and other celebrations that mark the beginning of most of our summers, let us take some time on Monday to remember those brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to the armed forces of our great nation, and subsequently what they have given to each of us in their selflessness. Without these generous and remarkable souls none of us would have the freedom to pursue our summers, let alone our lives, with such hope and optimism that many of us will have the chance to enjoy this weekend. 

Simon's Employee Plays for a Cause

Our very own Chrissy Alexander will be performing at the Paper Mill Island Amphitheater, this Sunday, May 17. This charity event will benefit pediatric cancer research at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital and the Jonathan Cancer Fund.

All the way from the Pacific-Northwest, Chrissy brings to the stage a taste of Nashville and a little bit of edgy Southern Rock. Other local acts will be performing throughout the day leading up to the main event of the evening. Chrissy will join the TJ Sacco Band at 7:00 pm prior to Nashville Recording Artist, Craig Morgan.

Celebrating Earth Day Every Day

As we collectively turn our attention to the environment this Earth Day, 2015, it’s important to remember that there are many things we can do as individuals to help improve our own living conditions and impact on our local environments as much as the Earth itself. Perhaps we are all guilty of spending too much time on the data and finger-pointing to simply consider our own individual impact on our environment. Sure it doesn't move the needle much on the entire Earth’s scale, but it certainly moves the needle in our building, our neighborhood, our town, and so on. If we all just gave a bit of ourselves, perhaps we could start to move the needle in a big way.
