Give To Get

Ho ho ho, the holidays are here! If you’re like me, you’re wondering, “How did this happen?” 2011 flew by faster than I thought possible.

Each year I’m amazed at how quickly the year goes by. One minute I’m hearing back to school ads on the radio and then before I know it, Santa greets me at the grocery store, ringing that little bell in my ear.

Ok enough with the shock . . . there’s really nothing to do at this point but to embrace it! Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Years – they’re approaching and it’s time to step up and make this a season one to remember for many years to come.

Now I’m getting to my point. What I know for sure (and now I sound like Oprah) is that the term “Give to Get” really is true. Whenever I give of my time and talents, I reap a harvest of contentment and joy. What I also know is that without planning on my part, the chance of actually doing something for someone else decreases with each holiday party and activity.

Now is the time to make a plan to give. I promise that by giving to others this season, we will all grab our own pocket of joy amidst the craziness of the season!

Why not start small by giving to one of the organizations I’ve listed below? After that, you may feel so good that you want to do more. Find a place to volunteer your time – at a school, a shelter, a hospital, etc. The opportunities for giving are endless and no effort is too small. Ok, time to start . . .

Check out these great places to GIVE TO GET this holiday season:

HomesForOurTroops.org (support our troops)
Operationsmile.org – (help those with a cleft palate)
Cradlestocrayons.org – (support homeless and low income children)
ASPCA.org – American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (support animals)
MOWAA.org – Meals on Wheels (support senior citizens)
Foodforthepeople.org – (support poor in the world)
www.worldvision.org -World Vision (support underprivileged everywhere)
www.sharedhope.org – Shared Hope International
(support victims of human trafficking)

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza and Happy New Year to all of you! May this be the year we all GIVE TO GET!

Fame For Frank Myers Auto Mascot, Commercials and Slogan May Spread

Winston-Salem, NC used car dealership Frank Myers Auto Maxx is known for its flashy commercials, patriotic Uncle Frank mascot and “Everybody Rides” slogan.

This Wednesday, a  film crew will be at the used car dealership on Patterson Avenue. However, they won’t be filming another quirky commercial. Instead, they will be making a documentary.

“We were hushed for almost six months and couldn’t say anything about it,” said Tracy Myers, the dealership’s owner.

Frank Myers Auto Maxx Film Part Of Series

The documentary will be part of a series of films that will focus on businesses and people. It will be produced by Loud Entertainment, an entertainment company based in Orlando and Los Angeles.

The film will look at the history of the dealership and Tracy Myer’s “uphill battle” to grow Frank Myers Auto Maxx, said Nick Nanton, a co-owner of Loud Entertainment and a producer and director.

Nanton recently received two Emmy nominations for the short film “Jacob’s Turn,” the story of a boy with Down syndrome and his love of baseball.

“I’ve worked with over 500 businesses around the world and I look for diamonds in the rough,” Nanton said. “Tracy is certainly one of them.”

History Of Frank Myers Auto Maxx

Frank Myers, Tracy Myers’ great-grandfather, opened the original business as a general store 83 years ago. Later, he began selling cars.

Tracy Myers bought the dealership from his father, Franklin “Frank” Myers in 2005. Frank Myers has several other businesses, including Credit Quick of Winston-Salem, Big Daddy’s Auto Rental and Big Daddy’s Storage.

The dealership is known for its quirky TV commercials, often featuring Uncle Frank, an Uncle Sam figure who likes to dance.

Tracy Myers hears “Everybody Rides” everywhere he goes.

“At the bank, a restaurant, Wal-Mart, Target and the mall, somebody’s yelling at me, ‘Everybody Rides!’ ” he said. “It’s just become part of the Myers’ lifestyle.”

In 2010, the dealership was honored as the No. 1 small business in North Carolina by Business Leader magazine. It was also chosen last year as the only independent dealer in North Carolina to receive the Nations Premier Independent Dealer Award.

A major part of Loud Entertainment’s movie will be shot during the Myers Family Community Appreciation Picnic, which is open to the public, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday June 22, 2011.

Members of the Myers family will be interviewed at various venues in the city throughout the week.

“It will be a nice tribute to the city of Winston-Salem as well as our business,” Tracy Myers said.

A release date for the film has not been set. But when it is released, Myers plans to have a red-carpet premier of the movie.

– Parts of the above story appeared in the Winston-Salem Journal on  June 18, 2011. It was written by Fran Daniel and the photo was taken by Jennifer Rotenizer.
