Sponsored this week by RCPM January Jam X – Stocking stuffer?
Countdown to Christmas! Bundle up this weekend, fellow sun seekers, as word on the beach is cold winds are coming through over the next couple days, with temperatures dropping to somewhere around 20°C (high 60s) – which means inside homes and offices it tends to get pretty chilly indeed. To fill up on holiday spirit, what a great time to join in a Toy, Food, or Blanket Drive. Enjoy the holiday kick off around town, and let’s run down the weekend!
