OVIA Wins 2011 Golden Quote Award for Best Newsletter

Oswego, NY – Oswego Valley Insurance Agencies (OVIA) won a Golden Quotes Award recently in the Marketing/Public Relations Category for “Best Newsletter”, according to Chuck Harrington, OVIA President.

The awards show and dinner, which is presented annually by the Professional Journalists and Communicators of Oswego County (PJCOC) recognizes excellence in the county’s communication fields. This year the competition was held at Springside at Seneca Hill.
