By Jessica Johnston, Assistant News Director

It’s officially cold. Bundle up and get out to some community events. Keep in mind that there are only two weeks left of regular football season. If sporting events aren’t up your alley, there’s plenty of things going on in the community to attend. Have an event this weekend or during the coming weekends you would like to see in the planner? Send the writer an email at jjohnston@ycitynews.com.
