Metzgers Sponsors, Participates in 14th Annual Partners in Education Dragon Boat Summer Learning Festival

IMG 6737Metzgers is big on giving back – it's a calling Joe instilled in all of us long ago. We donate to and participate in a variety of charity events throughout the year, and this year we participated in the Partners in Education Dragon Boat Festival for the first time on June 20, 2015.

"This was a fun way for us to give back to our community," said John Metzger. "The Partners in Education team is a small one, but they put on this huge event to promote the importance of summer learning programs, and it was exciting to be a part of it," he continued.

Racing a dragon boat requires a lot of teamwork. There are 20 rowers in the boat, as well as a drummer and a steersman. The drummer controls the tempo of the race by beating out a rhythm on the drum. Every rower has to stay in sync with that rhythm to move the boat quickly and efficiently. And the steersman ensures the boat maintains the straightest course from the start of the race to the finish line.


The Joy of Cookies

Almondina founder Yuval Zaliouk with his almond biscuits during production at the YZ Enterprises, Inc. cookie factory in Maumee.TOLEDO, OH - February 21, 2012 - The cookie itself resembles a thin biscotti, though perhaps with more almonds. The story of how it came to be made spans a century, beginning in what was then called Palestine, weaving a musical route through Europe -- with a stop in England for love -- and then winding up in Maumee after a long interlude with the Toledo Symphony.

At the beginning of the story is Dina Nathanson, a French-trained chef who lived in Haifa in what is now Israel. More than 80 years ago, she developed a recipe for what she called petit gateau sec, which is French for "little dried cakes." They were an instant hit with her family, friends, and neighbors.

TOLEDO, OH - October 4, 2011 - It's safe to say that there will be no terrible 2s for the Huntington Center, downtown Toledo's showcase arena for concerts, hockey, and family entertainment.

As the arena reaches the 2-year-old mark this month, other than a few complaints about the seats being too close together and small for larger-sized people, the arena has been an inarguable success story. It regularly draws acts that previously treated the city like a convenient place to fly over and has attracted positive national attention in the concert industry.
