Citizens Insurance Company Observes Renewal Of Charter
HOWELL-The Citizens Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. observed the renewal of its charter here yesterday with a luncheon, where the company has its home office. The original charter under which the company was organized was issued Aug. 27, 1915, after the 1915 legislature passed an act authorizing the incorporation of the company. The new charter is renewed for perpetuity.
Presiding at the luncheon was the company's president, George J. Burke, of Ann Arbor. Mr. Burke has been associated with Citizens as a director since the company's incorporation in 1915 and was elected president in 1932. As a testimonial of his long service Mr. Burke's associates presented him with a purse of $500. William E. Robb of Howell, who founded the company and who has served continuously as secretary and treasurer, presented a statement of the company's business and condition. The company has assets of $2,093,000.00 and does state-wide business.
Ray Spiess of Owosso an agent of the company who joined the organization and who has served with it since 1915, was given special recognition at the luncheon. Attending the luncheon as special guests were Howard Nugent, speaker of the house of representatives, State Senators Clarence A. Reid of Detroit, Audley Rawson of Cass City and Colin Smith of Big Rapids, and State Representatives Joseph Warner of Ypsilanti, Thurber Cornell of Howell, and Alpheus P. Decker of Deckerville.
