Dennis Hilton, president of three local companies that comprise the Cheney Financial Group, hosted a fantastic breakfast at the Oysterhead Lounge on May 10th to thank, inspire, and support his staff. The morning event began with a fun social networking game and lots of scratch-off lottery tickets.
Several community member guests joined over 34 CFG associates from Newcastle Realty, Newcastle Vacation Rentals and Cheney Insurance at the annual event, which is always a fun gathering to celebrate the beginning of their busiest season helping clients with insurance, rental properties, and real estate transactions. New staff were welcomed, including Tyler Dobson at Newcastle Vacation Rentals, Chelsea O’Donnell and Jessica Greene at Cheney Insurance, and new brokers who have joined the Newcastle Realty team, Jennifer Dowdy, Clint Miller, Patti Brown, and Keith Radonis.
Invited guests from the surrounding communities included local attorney Nat Hussey, Steven Hufnagel of the Damariscotta River Association, Irma Prentice, a long-time insurance customer, Sarah Caton from Lincoln County News, and Betsy Kelley, an underwriter from Patriot Insurance Company based in Yarmouth, Maine. Local builder Skip Lemar, was recognized for his many talents and his role handling a variety of maintenance and office improvement projects for all three CFG companies. 
A strong sense of camaraderie and commitment to community was evident in the enthusiasm, conversation and remarks from CFG associates. Dennis gave a motivational speech that clearly demonstrated his appreciation of the success, teamwork and loyalty of his staff. Following the breakfast and short program, door prizes were awarded and three attendees were sent to the famous “Wall of Cash” to choose from ten envelopes containing various denominations up to a $100 bill.
Supporting local businesses and our surrounding communities and neighbors is the cornerstone of the Cheney Financial Group.
