On behalf of the directors at Mutual Fire Insurance, I am proud to announce that because of our strong reinsurance program, our commitment to solid underwriting fundamentals, our prompt, efficient and fair claims handling, along with improved operational efficiencies in all departments, we earned a solid income for the year. So, in the true sense of a mutual company, the Board of Directors has declared a premium refund.”
