Like so many people, we at D.G. Meyer Inc. have had family, friends and too many acquaintances tragically affected by Breast Cancer. So—again this year we donned our Pink Tees and joined 11,000 friends to walk and raise funds for Breast Cancer Research and Support.
The Making Strides Volusia-Flagler event took place on Saturday October 27th at 9:00 a.m. It was a beautiful fall day in Florida, dawning cool and crisp under brilliant blue skies streaked with high thin clouds. The breeze off of the river was a bit brisk, but we couldn’t have ordered a more perfect day for the Walk.
This year’s event raised a total of $307,186 to help support those facing breast cancer, and ultimately end the disease. Our D.G. Meyer Team, once again Captained by the beautiful and intrepid Brianna Toth, Office Administrator for the Company had— officially— seven members, but at least twice that number including friends and family turned out to walk with us. We raised over $600 again this year.
What a Team!
… And we all had a great time. What a very good and useful way to spend a morning. Our Team ranged in age from one year old to mid-sixties. We are a Family company, and we brought many of them along. You’re never too young or too old to help your friends, your (extended) family and your community!
We are so deeply grateful to all those who walked and to all those who donated to this worthy cause.
We wanted to make sure and remind you that it’s time to give a little TLC to the HVAC system that worked so very hard for you through yet another hot and humid Florida summer. Lets face it—it is still hot out there and probably will continue so for a while yet. However, with the change of season officially recognized now, it’s the perfect time to take stock of your System’s recent performance.
While it still may be hard to believe that Fall is here, you should take the initiative now to be certain that you are prepared when cooler weather arrives in Central Florida. Be sure your unit is in tip-top condition before the Heating Season begins. This is also a great time to consider the replacement of old or less than efficient equipment. Our Residential Sales Department Team would be pleased to give you an estimate or answer your questions.
For maintenance and service, call D.G. Meyer, Inc. and ask about our Residential Energy Saving Agreement.

Our D.G. Meyer family would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend. We will be closed on Monday so that our employees can enjoy the holiday with their families, but we’ll be back on Tuesday morning ready to go.
We know that everywhere you look lately (except out of our own front doors!), there are signs of a changing season. However, while the stores and media may encourage us otherwise, we live in Florida, and we Know that fall is not in the air here. We will not be needing those sweaters that are hanging on the racks of your favorite department store any time soon, and Pumpkin Spice at Starbucks notwithstanding, fall decoration and feasting are a bit premature
So lets not rush things. There are still three weeks of glorious summer left on the calendar and many weeks (months?) left on our Florida thermometers. Relax over the long holiday weekend! Enjoy the holiday at the beach, the pool, the park or your favorite pub.
And if you find yourself in need of AC Service, be sure and let us know. We’re here to answer your service calls [386-253-7774] 24/7! For any non-emergency service, use our convenient Contact form.
After all, we’re in Florida, and we Know we’re gonna need that Air Conditioning for a good long while yet.
While you enjoy the cook-outs, family get-togethers, beach, fireworks and other festivities of this week’s holiday , take the time to reflect on why we Still celebrate Independence Day after more than 240 years as a nation. July 4th is so much more than just a holiday to break up the summer doldrums. It is the time to look back on the people and the events that made this country free, and brought us the blessings and prosperity that we are favored with today.
Be Safe as You Celebrate.
Remember to handle fireworks and sparklers with respect.
Be aware of fire hazards, and keep a safe distance from lit fireworks.
Supervise children closely, and never let them light sparklers.
Keep a supply of water nearby as a precaution.
If grilling, be careful and heed all safety precautions. Make sure kids and pets stay away from the grill.
Be mindful of the Florida heat as you play outdoors this week (and all summer). Protect your skin from the sun, stay hydrated and seek shade if you begin to feel light-headed or dizzy.
Plan ahead in the event of lightning and storms, which are very common in the afternoon and evenings this time of year. Make certain shelter is available.
From the D.G. Meyer Inc. family to yours—wishing everyone a very Safe and Fun July Fourth Holiday!
