Small Pond At the Port Orange Chamber Golf Tournament

Small Pond Advertising was a “Birdie” hole sponsor at the recent Port Orange Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament which was held at the Spruce Creek Fly-In Golf Club.  This event is big fundraiser for the Chamber.

The Small Pond Team of Ken & Priscilla Clark, and Mike & Kim Stucky of Advanced Air & Heat played well and carded a 7-under par score.  Not bad for a bunch of hackers that even bested some other good golfer teams .  Here are Ken and Mike negotiating for more strokes from Blake Thomas of Blake Thomas – State Farm Insurance.

Blake was unsympathetic.

And let’s guess who walked away with the Woman’s Longest Drive and Closest to the Hole prizes???

No one uses the print Yellow Pages anymore..

I still hear this a lot. Well, it just aint’ true. Case in point — as I was about to enter a local pizzeria the other night only to come upon this person, phone book in hand (our New Smyrna Beach yellow pages, not the Telco book) locked in an intense discussion with what sounded like a sibling, providing them with a list local service providers they should be contacting..

Since I didn’t want to be obvious I took the picture from the other side of the parking lot. And yes, that appears to be an iPhone in his hand.  Good thing he has all that high-powered technology at his finger tips.

Yes, the internet and mobile technology have become a big part of our lives. Heck I walk around with 2 iPhones (story for another day). But if you want to find it fast, if you want to be able to differentiate between businesses especially in a category/heading where you are not an expert, and you want a local business, nothing is quicker that a print Yellow Pages featuring local small businesses.

Announcing Our 3rd Market — Ormond Beach!!!

We are very excited to announce today that we will be adding a third market to the Small Pond portfolio: Ormond Beach!!!ORM 2009 cover001

Sales will be commencing Monday for both a directory & coupon book, just as we have in other markets. The book was last published by the prior management in 2009 and then not repeated in 2010 when the economy turned sour and prior management had other issues. The new 2014 edition will be completed and distributed starting in May.

Ormond Beach is wonderful market, very similar to the Port Orange and New Smyrna Beach markets we currently publish in. Currently it has about 35,000 full time, and more during the winter months when the “snow birds” arrive.

Today we joined the Ormond Beach Chamber of Commerce. They have a great website at Here is some history on the town from the Chamber website:

Ormond Beach’s history can be traced back to English settlers and the Timucua Indians. Over the years the state had been claimed by many European nations and finally became part of the United States in 1819. In the 1700s and early 1800s, the area around the Halifax and Tomoka Rivers was occupied by large sugar mill plantations. The second Seminole War (1835-1842) put an end to the plantations. After Florida entered the Union and Volusia County was created in 1854, there were some 20 families living in the entire county. A few families from Georgia and the Carolinas started the Tomoka Settlement, which was at the west end of the present city limits. Their orange groves were destroyed in the big freeze of 1895-96.
Meanwhile, a group of families from New Britain, Connecticut, started a retirement colony on the west bank of the Halifax River. The town was incorporated a city and named Ormond Beach in 1880. Two of the early colonists, John Anderson and Joseph Downing Price, built the Hotel Ormond, which opened its doors January 1, 1888. Henry Flagler bought the hotel in 1890, retaining Anderson and Price as managers, and also purchased the railroad, which had been brought into Ormond Beach by Utley J. White. A bridge for rails and carriages was erected across the Halifax River so that Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway could discharge passengers at the entrance of the Hotel Ormond. Early in the 1900s, a visitor at the hotel discovered that the newfangled motor car could drive on the sands of the beach. In 1902, Ransome E. Olds and Henry Winton staged an unofficial race on the beach at Ormond. The following year the American Automobile Association brought in its timing equipment and Ormond Beach became the Birthplace of Speed.

Many famous and well-known men and women stayed during the winter months at the Hotel Ormond, including Flagler’s friend, John D. Rockefeller. After a few seasons, however, Rockefeller bought a house across the street from the hotel, now called “The Casements,” and lived there until his death in 1937 at the age of 97. The Casements is now a cultural center for the city.
