Gowrie Group, a New England independent personal lines and marine insurance agency, continued an annual tradition of bringing a fresh approach to the Newport (R.I.) International Boat Show.

The Gowrie team delivered 60 custom bucket-bags filled with apples to marine industry clients and friends that were exhibiting boats and products at the show.

In total, the buckets contained nearly 600 pounds of apples. The Gowrie team also provided apples to hundreds of clients and visitors who came by the Gowrie display to learn more.

The apples the Gowrie team delivered were grown locally at Bishop's Orchards of Guilford, Conn.
