Blue Meridian: We stand on the merits of our accomplishments, the honor of our professionalism and our dedication and loyalty to our customers - our friends and dive buddies!
On behalf of myself and my staff, we wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas!!
If someone can tell me where this year went, I would love to know. It is said that time flies when you are having fun and let me tell you....we had a blast in 2014. We have so many new divers and friends!! We had some absolutely beautiful trips and those could have lasted a lot longer!! We had a very successful UW Treasure Hunt and the list just goes on and on!!! If 2015 is anything like 2014....it's gonna be awesome!!!!
I would like to take a minute to thank a few people who always, always help me make each year the best it can be.
Ellan, Dave, Rob, Lucian, Hugh and Stacy have given me their best all year and for many years. I might be the heart but they are the soul of Blue Meridian and without them....it just wouldn't work. Jennifer is a new breath of fresh air that breezed in this summer and became a part of our BMDC family. Randy is a blessing and a dear friend that I am thrilled to have back, you'll see more of him in 2015. Last, but not least, my sister Carla. You don't see her as much but she's here and she helps me in the wee hours of the morning when we have to finish up that last minute stuff for this or that. I am truly blessed to have each one of them in my life and I am forever grateful for their dedication to our students, their professionalism, their kindness and the truly priceless relationship I have with each of them. Kudos to my crew, I adore them all!!!
Now what about 2015? We have some big plans baby!!! We are expanding our staff in 2015. We are planning on some fabulous trips, just trying to narrow down the selections. Also, we have some new ideas for ways to keep our certified divers active and in the water. So don't think just because we take a couple of weeks off at Christmas to regroup that we aren't working....we are and I promise that 2015 at Blue Meridian will put a smile on your face and a regulator in your mouth.
From all of us here at BMDC, please be safe in your holiday celebrations and may all your Christmas wishes come true!!

Angel Tree Christmas Giving
We have our Angels from the Salvation Army already and we will be shopping for the 8 kiddos on Sunday December 7 at Wal-Mart on Frederica Street. We will meet at the main entrance at 1:00pm and then gather at Susie's house after to wrap the gifts and eat dinner.
We would love for more people to join us. We have a lot of fun doing something nice for children that shouldn't have to do without, especially at Christmas!! So drag your gluteus maximus out of the house and join us for a little while...we promise it will make your heart feel good!!! You don't have to be an excellent shopper we do everything in teams, shopping, wrapping. You have to try it to understand how good it feels to give back. Hope you can join us!
If you are interested and need more info...call Susie at the store!!
New!! New!! New!!
We are adding a new charity to our list of donations for the holiday season.
Adopt a Senior is a program that is being run by a friend and diver Stephen Bryson. The idea is that senior citizens in nursing homes or those home bound will get a little Christmas cheer with a modest gift that they have requested. Each senior is allowed to put down a couple of items that would help them out and then the person with that senior angel purchases the item and returns it to Stephen's organization for distribution before Christmas. I challenge each of you to visit a local nursing home and then come and tell me that those seniors wouldn't appreciate your time, your kindness for thinking of them this holiday season. They do, more than you could possibly know!!
We are taking on 20 senior angels this season and we need your help in shopping for those angels. We will be buying for our seniors and children on the same day. So please join us and together lets make a difference in a lot of lives....including yours!!
Sunday December 7 1:00pm at Wal-Mart on Frederica Street, main entrance.
Contact Susie if you have any questions!
Saturday December 20th at 10:00am
A chill is in the air and that means it's time for our "cold weather" classes to start.
Equipment Specialist is for those people who are a little more than leery of their own gear. Are those bubbles bad or good, does that noise mean there is a problem, is that rip in my wetsuit the end of the line for my favorite suit?
We will answer these and many more questions you might have about the gear you use each time you dive. Hands on experiences will help clarify and clear up questions you might have on deck.
There is no pre-requisite for this class and you will receive a c-card upon completion. Also this PADI specialty counts toward your Master Scuba Diver rating.
Give us a call to secure your spot!
Just a quick note!
We will be closed on the following days:
Thursday and Friday December 11 & 12
Thursday December 24 - Christmas Holiday
