Get Fit Before the Holidays

You’re not alone if the holiday months bring visions of leftover Halloween candy, your Thanksgiving feast, cookie-decorating parties, and Champagne toasts. Unfortunately, the stretch from late October to New Year’s Day can also leave chocolate-filled, gravy-covered, and bubbly extra weight on our bodies.

By stepping up your activity level now, you can enjoy your seasonal favorites and still stay fit. And doing that is as close as the starting line for three fun runs – all benefiting good causes – coming up at RFK Stadium.

I Wonder… What Can I Do with my Unused Paint?

We all have at least one can of old paint taking up space in our garage or shed. You know – the paint you thought you’d keep around to use on your next project or to fix marks on your walls? Well, now that you’ve changed your color scheme and no longer need that shade, you can’t just put it out on the curb with the rest of your trash because wet paint can be dangerous to the environment unless properly disposed. It contains materials that can leak into the ground, hurt sanitation workers, or contaminate septic tanks. So, what are you supposed to do with it? 

Bring it to our Paint Drop-Off Recycling Event next month!
