D.G. Meyer Inc. began working on this amazing project last fall, and now it is nearly complete. The Environmental Discovery Center at 601 Division Avenue, Ormond Beach, FL will provide visitors with a glimpse into the diverse ecosystems of this area. The Center’s stated mission is to foster an awareness and appreciation of the natural environment by providing stimulating environmental education programs that inspire participants to be active stewards of their surrounding natural resources. This will be an awesome resource for schools in Ormond and surrounding areas, allowing students to have a hands-on and up close interaction with the native environment.
You can find out more about this fascinating project, and get updates on its progress, by clicking on this link— EDC or checking out their FacebookPage. Watch for the Center’s opening in the near future…
It is mid week, and already the constant rumble of many motorcycles fills the soft pre-spring Florida air. Officially, Bike Week 2016 begins on Friday March 4th and lasts through Sunday March 13th (though some sources list this as Monday the 14th). The stampede of iron horses begin arriving well before the actual event though, lured by the warmer southern climate and the holiday atmosphere the event generates.
Bike Week has a long and colorful history that actually dates back to the inaugural running of the Daytona 200 race in 1937 on a 3.2 mile beach track and won by an Indian motorcycle. Today it is a ten-day long festival filled with events and activities from Ormond Beach south to New Smyrna. Look no further than the Destination Daytona Complex just north of Ormond Beach, FL— a tribute to Harley Davidson and all things Motorcycle— to see just how seriously the Daytona Beach area takes Bike Week.
Several among the owners, office crew and employees of D.G. Meyer are or have been motorcyclist, and remain avid fans of the sport and the event. The company also recognizes that events such as Bike Week are what keep the local economy healthy and growing.
In accordance with this interest in Bike Week and motorcycles, D.G. Meyer began having a commemorative tee-shirt printed to distribute among employees and friends back in 1994. This custom grew over the years.. and these shirts have become a tradition and a staple of our year at the company, and a collector’s item among many of our friends and associates.
