Staff at The Tri-City News on Friday got an early Christmas present when Port Coquitlam liquor store employee Adam Turpin dropped by.

The Nicola Avenue worker visited the newspaper to pick up a few copies of Friday's edition, in which he was featured on page 3, and belted out White Christmas as his way of saying thanks.

Reporter Sarah Payne wrote about Turpin, a classically trained bass baritone singer who likes to sing while he works at the provincial liquor store.

Turpin will graduate from the UBC School of Music with his bachelor's degree this spring.
