Who wants to drive a truck full of Hurricane Sandy relief donations to New Jersey on Wednesday?
JP Bedard of Wicked Sharp Ski & Sports sent this email to West Roxbury Patch seeking volunteer drivers to bring Hurricane Sandy relief drive donations to New Jersey. "We are looking for a couple of people to drive to NJ with the donations... if they can do it they can contact Jim Hennigan at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 617-947-5265.

Wicked Sharp Ski & Sports, the St. Theresa's community, as well as the Irish Social Club of Boston, all kicked into gear to run a relief drive for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

A five-foot tall snowman on Centre Street?! What should his name be? And how come there's no Mrs. Snowman??
No, you were not hallucinating this past weekend when you saw a snowman on Centre Street. "We are at it again! This guy is almost 5 feet tall!" said JP Bedard, owner of Wicked Sharp Ski & Sports. But the snowman doesn't have a name - yet. Said Bedard, "The Snowman has arrived! We will be having a contest to name our snow man who comes out every Saturday during our winter season." His season debut was September 1. "Come down for a visit and hit us with some clever names!" said Bedard. "You can also email your cleverness to email@example.com. The winner will receive a gift card to iScream Works!"
