Year opened: American Family Insurance has been in Hillsboro/Marion County since 1987. Jayson Hanschu has been an American Family agent since 1998, and has been the agent in this area since 2000.
About us: We sell and service a variety of insurance products such as vehicle, home, farm, business and many types of life insurance. We strive to make Ameri­can Family Insurance a visible and viable part of our local community here in Hills­boro, Marion County and the surrounding area.
News in 2016: Jayson was elected to serve on the “state agency council” as a district representative for American Family agents. Agency council reps are a vital link in connecting needs of the “field” with decisions at “corporate” and vice versa. Jayson sees this role as key in making sure Am Fam stays “in touch” with the needs of current and prospective customers. Our agency was named an “All-American Agency” by American Family Insurance for the 11th time in our agency career. The All-American honor is earned by about the top 20 percent of agents in the entire company each year for overall sales and service of the entire line of insurance products. For the 12th year in a row, we were awarded the American Star Agency Award for Excellence in Customer Exper­ience. Also, for outstanding sales and service in farm and ranch insurance, we received the “Peak Harvest” award for the 15th time in our agency career. 2016 was an amazing year at our agency and for that we thank our customers and the local communities. As technology becomes more and more an everyday part of our lives, we continue to look for ways to utilize technology to add value for our clients, such as starting a Facebook page and allowing more functions to be done online if clients so choose. But, in all this, we at the local agency still continue to focus our efforts on service and building professional and long-lasting relationships with clients and prospects. And, yet again in 2016, our agency showed growth in policy count and premium; and, for that, we say “Thanks!” to you, our clients. We look forward to continuing to serve you.
Looking to 2017: Starting in 2016 and continuing into 2017, American Family Insurance will be doing some significant updating to its products and processing systems—all designed to make our products more marketable to our clients’ needs and our processes more efficient for all users. Our corporate website, amfam.com, continues to add features and make improvements, not only in regard to paying capability and claim reporting for our insureds, but also in regard to quoting and 24-hour service accessibility for all. As mobile technology continues to evolve, American Family continues to look at features that will allow for the selling to and servicing of clients who want to do business via mobile technology. Am Fam corporate is focusing much attention on upgrading our mobile device technology. Jay­son will continue to serve his term as an agency council rep to make sure local voices and concerns are heard by corporate. We will continue to sell and service insurance products in Marion County and surrounding areas. Locally, we take seriously our role of educating clients on the subject of insurance and being an adviser/consultant on the topic of insurance. With today’s volatile fiscal and litigious environment, we will continue to do insurance reviews and adjust policies as needed to higher liability limits, as well as adding umbrella liability coverage when appropriate. We also will continue to adjust and complete clients’ insurance portfolios by adding life insurance for financial protection in case tragedy were to occur. Especially marketing our popular “Simply Protected” life policy that does not require medical testing, as well as our new MyLife Freedom life insurance policy – ask us about it! Even if you are not a current client, you are welcome to call or come by for a free, no-obligation insurance review.

About us: Fast Realty prides itself as being a one-stop agency for residential, commercial and rural properties. We are mindful of the trust our clients have put in us and continually strive to conduct business as honestly and ethically as possible, knowing that a home purchase is the most expensive purchase most of us will make in our lifetime. Com­munication is one of our goals as we walk both the buyer and sellers through this complicated transaction process. As the real estate market changes, we continue to educate ourselves about current trends and new technology. Glenn Thiessen, owner and broker, is certified as a senior real estate specialist, and knows the ins and outs of helping the elderly population of our community make that transition to the next stages of retirement. Donna Moore, our office manager, has been with the company since its infancy. We at Fast Realty are very knowledgeable of the local area and surrounding county, and are ready to meet your real estate needs.
News from 2016: For the eighth year in a row, Glenn Thiessen qualified for the Presi­dent’s Award of Excellence (the highest award given by our parent association, Wichita Associa­tion of Realtors). To qualify for the award an agent must achieve in excess of 25 transactions in a given year. Glenn and his staff have worked diligently with both local home buyers and sellers as well as those moving into our community from other states and cities, and those folks who might live remotely but have a home to sell here in the area. We are proud to welcome Terry Pankratz as a licensed selling agent. For now, Terry is still working his full time job in Wichita, but is available on weekends and evenings to assist you with your buying or selling needs.
Looking to 2017: Fast Realty is anticipating another record year as the current market is in a gradual upswing and not expected to peak until sometime in 2018 or later. Our mild start to the year, temperature-wise, has made for continued activity of both buyers and sellers in Marion County. The interest rates last year stayed at low levels, but now we are beginning to see an upswing in interest rates. Interest rates have increased by 1 point with higher rates expected. This is still an opportune time to enter the home-buying process, though. Our goal here at Fast Realty is to see our community grow with more new home builds and sales, while maintaining a solid turnaround of inventory based on quality, quantity and price of homes. Commercial construction in Hillsboro has increased, which is encouraging both to the local population and outside investors wanting to relocate to our community. With Tabor College increasing in enrollment, USD 410 excelling in education, arts and athletics, a progressive city council and quality churches and homes make Hillsboro a must-see community when making a move to the area.
Hours: 9 a.m. To 5 p.m. Mon­day through Friday and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. Glenn and Terry are available via cell phone for after-hours appointments. We always appreciate referrals from our satisfied customers. You can reach Glenn at 620-382-4682 cell, and Terry at 620-877-0477.

Year opened: Hillsboro Community Foundation was formed in 2004 with the vision of connecting caring donors to worthy causes.
About us: The Hillsboro Community Foundation exists to promote and facilitate charitable giving in support of projects and programs that enhance the quality of life in the Hillsboro community. In fulfilling that mission, the HCF plays many roles, but primarily serves to: (1) receive and manage donor funds for projects benefiting the Hillsboro community and the area; (2) help donors identify local organizations, projects and programs that meet their philanthropic goals; and (3) serve as an ambassador promoting the needs of the Hillsboro community. In addition, the HCF serves as an important forum for discussing how private philanthropy and giving can support the long-term needs of the community. Governed by a board of directors, representing a variety of local interests in the community, the foundation is making efforts for positive change and is charged by the momentum of key leaders working together. This collaborative approach also minimizes the duplication of effort across organizations.
News from 2016: In February, HCF distributed a record $17,300 among 10 area non-profit organizations. A total of $431,900 in grants and scholarships have been given to the community since the formation of the foundation. In 2014, the board set a goal to reach $2 million in total assets. At that time, the total assets were $1.612 million. Five percent of the endowment returns to our community each year, providing opportunities, services and a future for the non-profit organizations in the community. The board is proud to announce that the $2 million goal has been reached through the generosity of people in the Hillsboro community. The foundation currently has $2.1 million in assets.
Looking to 2017: We will again be awarding additional grants to deserving organizations and causes in the Hillsboro area. We also will continue to pursue our three priority goals listed above. Grant applications were received from various non-profit organizations in the local community during December and early January. Grant awards will be presented at a reception at 6 p.m. Feb. 17 in the high school and checks will be presented at halftime of the boys’ varsity game that evening. In May, scholarships will be given o many deserving high school seniors.

About us: The primary objective of Hillsboro Development Corp. is to cultivate and promote a positive business climate in Hillsboro and the surrounding community. A major contribution over the years has been the development of Hillsboro Indus­trial Park, presently home to 12 business owners. Recognizing the importance of assisting and developing entrepreneurs, HDC established Hillsboro Ventures Inc. (HVI) in 2007 specifically to support entrepreneurs by surrounding them with resources needed to become successful through the business start-up or expansion phase. In 2009 HDC/HVI made application for Hillsboro to be an Entrepre­neurial Community (E-Commun­ity) to NetWork Kansas. The E-Community designation allowed us to establish a revolving loan fund through the sale of tax credits. To date we have assisted 10 business start-ups or expansions with low-interest loans.
Looking to 2017: In the past decade, Hillsboro capital expenditures in both public and private sectors have totaled nearly $5 million per year. The result of months and years of planning, Hillsboro’s economy will see the largest spike in capital expenditures in history totaling $32 million in 2017. The large number of expansion projects to be completed this year will have a long­term and positive effect on the local community, ranging from additional services and job creation to increased revenue from property-tax valuation. The major building projects include the new community hospital, Tabor College Fine Arts Center, Hillsboro Hometown Pharmacy, MB Foundation office complex and several retail business expansions. HDC/HVI will continue to work with business prospects to occupy vacant buildings on Main Street and in Hillsboro Heights.

About us: MB Foundation offers a variety of financial services from a biblical perspective, including planned-giving services, fund management (for charities), loans (to charities and pastors), investment certificates, and we champion biblical stewardship.
News from 2016: We started the construction of a new office building at the corner of D and Washington streets in Hillsboro to better serve our constituency. New staff members were hired in Hillsboro and in our Fresno, Calif., office bringing our staff total to 15. We conducted our first-ever Giving Challenge. Participants were asked to share generosity stories and four random participants were selected to give away $5,000 to the charity(ies) of their choice. A total of $20,000 was distributed, incuding some to charities in Marion County. A retire­ment program was started for staff in the Mennonite Breth­ren church family. An annual scholarship called Leadership Generation Fund was created to encourage leadership development in the MB church family. For the first time in our history, loan interest rates decreased and certificate interest rates increased simultaneously. Jon Wiebe, president and CEO, celebrated 20 years at MB Foundation.
Looking to 2017: We move into 2017 with the theme of “Build.” That will include completing our construction project in May. We love that the location and will continue to offer fuel—but fuel for ministry rather than gas for vehicles. We will host our second national gathering of empty-nesters, builders and boomers called “Celebrate 2017” in Denver, Colo. We will continue to build our offices in Hillsboro and Fresno to serve our nation-wide constituency.

About us: We began this business as a wholesale-only greenhouse in 2003. We have phased out of the wholesale part of the business and are now retail only. We offer premium annuals, hanging baskets, bedding plants, vegetables, herbs, seed, perennials, trees, shrubs and garden supplies (fertilizer, pest control, potting mix, etc.).
News in 2016: Each year I carry more and more new items. In 2016, we added some amazing sphagnum moss hanging baskets. They were monstrous in size, 30 inches by 36 inces wide. I hung mine with a chain! We also vary our plant variety offerings each year. Trying new plant introductions while keeping the old standard standbys keeps things from getting boring. Spring 2016 saw many new customers and great sales. Fall 2016 was a bit more challenging due to the Septem­ber rains and 190th Street being closed between Pawnee and Quail Creek Road. The road being closed has diverted a lot of traffic away from our location.
Looking to 2017: We are excited about a new supplier for mulch this year. This will bring the cost per bag down greatly. We also plan to carry more varieties of mulch, including pine bark nuggets and colored mulch. I have just ordered some gift items and soon will be ordering some spring bulbs (gladiolus, caladium, etc). If you would like something in particular, let me know. Also new this year will be some fairy garden figurines and plants suitable for creating the fairy gardens. My kids had a great time creating a few fairy gardens last year and I love it when they voluntarily become involved in the greenhouse projects.
