Rockport — The new State Farm office, located at 280 West St., held an open house Nov. 10 complete with music, food and a visit from the company's furry mascot, the "Good Neigh-Bear." Agency owner January Peavey said the theme of the event was to show appreciation to the Rockport community.

Peavey has been part of the State Farm team for 10 years, and will be joined at the office by two other insurance agents, Elizabeth Hayes and Rachel Jones. Peavey, Hayes and Jones were busy in the office Friday, meeting with colleagues and new customers and offering appetizers and State Farm-themed mementos to all who visited.

DJ Matt James from 92 Moose was broadcasting live from the event, which added a great deal of energy to the ambience. Outside the office, the State Farm "Good Neigh-Bear" braved the cold November winds, waving to motorists.

Inside the office, the staff had also provided a wide array of Christmas cards visitors could send to 9-year-old Jacob Thompson, who is battling terminal cancer at the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital in Portland, and has said that his wish is to receive early Christmas cards this year. Peavey said she hopes to offer her new customers service that shows similar caring.

"We provide personalized, attentive service. Our main mission is to meet your needs, to help our customers achieve their goals and dreams," said Peavey. "State Farm put us here [in Rockport] because there's more that we can give in this area. We're here to serve and help this community by offering the insurance services we provide."
