ginatholidayadAt 9 a.m., head down the freeway to Cypress College to watch our Bonita ladies vie for the CIF crown against Hacienda Heights Los Altos in the Division 3-AA final at 10 in gym No. 2. Twice earlier in the season, the Lady Bearcats defeated the Conquerors, but getting the hat trick with so much on the line will not be easy. So come out and show your support.

Back in La Verne, drop in for some light holiday shopping at the Holiday Boutique at 1328 Palomares. Featured items include purses, belts, scarves, wickless candles, scented candles, custom jewelry, fashion jewelry, hand-painted glassware, wine lights, clothing, kitchen items and more. The Holiday Boutique runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Okay, you’re in luck. Gina T is holding a free Christmas Tree Decorating Class on Sat., Nov. 21, at  both 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Learn from the best and also enjoy storewide savings at either of the two downtown Gina T. locations: Gina T Interior Accents at 2152 Bonita Ave. and Gina T Home at 2316 D Street.

If you haven’t already, walk down to Dippin’ Dots (2310 D Street), also in downtown La Verne, and pick up your tickets for the Home for the Holidays Home Tour, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., where you’ll tour three premier homes exceptionally decorated for the holidays. This self-guided tour allows you to enjoy these homes at your leisure.
