The First National Agency has added the Missouri Valley Mutual Insurance Company to their selection of insurance and financial services.

The agency has purchased the Noteboom Agency, with the official transfer date being May 15th. April Noteboom will continue employment at the office of Les' Body Shop in Philip.

"It is our hope to provide the same quality service that the clients have come to expect from April Noteboom and her predecessor, Jim Gottsleben," said First National Agency Manager Joe Gittings. He and his crew will be contacting current Missouri Valley Mutual clients for introductions and to set up a future review of services.

"We feel this purchase will be an enhancement to our agency," said Gittings. "Missouri Valley started in May of 1914 in Burke, SD. FNA is an independent agency and not tied to any one company. It started in 1963 as an additional service to the customers of the First National Bank in Philip."

FNA offers a wide variety of insurance, buying and selling of stock, IRAs and other financial services. Gittings is the agency manager. Other agency representatives include Barb Williamson, agent, Anita Peterson, licensed customer service representative and Judy Elshere, customer service representative. As agents, Williamson and Gittings offer a total of 32 years of service experience.
