Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

For everyone who was saying it was tough getting into the holiday spirit with-out any snow, here you go. Over ten centimeters is down in Greater Saint John with the first snow-fall of the winter season. Rain changed over to the white stuff early last night when the temperature took a sudden dip and the flakes continue to fall. Environment Canada tells us the sky should begin to clear by this afternoon. Police forces are reporting a few minor accidents but nothing serious at this point.

A reminder to make sure your vehicle is entirely cleaned off before pulling out into traffic and give yourself some extra time to get where you are going.

Rally of?

Word on what the replacement event will be for Rally of Hope is still being ironed out. The final event was held back in June and officials have been meeting ever since to get all the details wrapped up. Executive Director of the Regional Hospital Foundation Tim Cameron tells CHSJ News, they are talking to everyone who had something to do with the Rally to get the best ideas.
Cameron says the new event might be something that runs through-out the entire year with the final details expected to be rolled out early in the new year.

Donate While You Doze

For anyone who can't seem to find the time to donate to a charity, the United Way has a new initiative that takes very little effort. Its called ""Donate While You Doze"" and is in conjunction with the Holiday Inn and Suites in the North End. The hotel is slashing it's room rate in half with twelve dollars from each room going to the United Way. Elizabeth Jadoo is Executive Director of the United Way and tells CHSJ News, giving to charity doesn't get any easier than this.
Moncton raised over eight thousand dollars last year with this initiative and Jadoo hopes they can raise three thousand dollars. It runs between December.20th and January.4th.
