OLYMPIC HOPEFULES

Get out of the cold this winter and head into the home. The Home Depot, that is. In cities across the U.S., the company’s Olympic Kids Workshops are getting kids ages 6 to 12 involved in the thrill of the Olympic Games through projects from Olympic pin boards to the five-ring toss to bobsleds — all with the help of Olympic athletes such as speed skater Derek Parra, snowboarder Lisa Kosglow, and bobsledder Garrett Hines. The program is free and runs through March, with workshops offered on the first Saturday of every month. Call your local Home Depot or visit www.homedepot. com. — J.E.M.
