It is time for the most popular Scout Meeting of the year! The annual Troop 55 Holiday Gift Exchange! 

This is for Scouts and Scouters of Troop 55 only! No family members or friends, there are just too many of us to invite others…sorrry.

Everyone brings a wrapped gift to exchange (scouts and leaders). The gift can be a white elephant or something fun or “Scouty.”  It must fall within the parameters of the Scout Oath and Law though!         Do not spend a whole lot of money!
Food will be brought by patrol for the cracker barrel, each member of the patrol brings one item:
Bob White Patrol = Crackers
Cougar Patrol = Cheeses
Wolf Patrol = Suasages
Cobra Patrol = Drinks
Fire Birds = Cookies/Desserts
Fire Eagles = Cookies/Desserts
