On Saturday, May 9, the Ellwood City Area Chamber of Commerce helped Caroline & Scott Golmic celebrate the Grand Opening of their Aflac office at 201 5th Street, Ellwood City, PA with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. The 3:00 event was followed by an Open House with champagne, cake and refreshments for the couple’s friends, business associates, family and well-wishers from the Chamber and the community.

Caroline Golmic explains, “Aflac is not health insurance. Health insurance pays the doctors and hospitals. Aflac pays cash directly to their policyholders in the event of an injury or illness. In the last six years I have seen Aflac provide financial peace to families experiencing emotional distress due to a serious accident or illness. In fact, I had a serious car accident in 2009 and the cash Aflac paid me enabled my family to turn their dining room into a hospital room for three months while I healed.”Ellwood City native Caroline Golmic, formerly Caroline Ovial, grew up in Ellwood City but returned with her husband, Scott, last year. She has been with Aflac for six years and is a District Sales Coordinator for the local area. Her husband joined her team in November of 2014 as the Asset Manager.

“We work with business owners who are looking for a way to enhance their benefit package for their staff without affecting their bottom line. There is NO COST to business owners who offer Aflac to their employees, and employees receive a group rate when their company offers Aflac to them. Aflac offers a wide-range of benefits including Cancer, Accident, Short-Term Disability, Hospitalization, Critical Illness, Dental, and Life insurance.”

Golmic notes, “I’d like to thank the Ellwood City Chamber of Commerce for their continued support as we bring both our Aflac office and our after school program, EnCompass Point, to Ellwood City. We look forward to being part of the revitalization of our hometown.”
