We decided that our Christmas party/gift exchange/cookie exchange would be held on December 11th. We drew names for the gift exchange. Each family that wants to participate in the cookie exchange can bring 2 dozen cookies.

Operation Christmas Child - It was decided that we would pay for the contents and shipping of four shoe boxes, girl 5-9, girl 10-14, boy 5-9, boy 10-14. We went to The Mountain Doller and spent $13 for each box plus 7 dollars shipping.

We need to think of some community service ideas.
