Spring has sprung in the great commonwealth of Virginia – we have the chirping, flowers, and Lord knows the pollen to prove it!

But it’s not standing in the way of DP performing the greatest spring cleaning task of all time.  Three cheers for that guy!


Just enough heat lightning, Canadian wildfire smoke, and typical Virginia humidity to keep us on our toes ’round here.

But with the addition of some new, young, and ridiculously good-looking talent, we’re ready to tackle the summer head on!


Happy Centenary Birthday, Progressive!  While no official documentation cites the particular month of our birth, we’re choosing to celebrate our 100th birthday this autumn.

We are so thankful for all (teammates, customers, vendors) who have been a part of our story.  Here’s to many, many more successful years!
