It is once again time to start planning for the holiday party. I would love to hear your ideas as to activities. There are usually around 80 people at these parties so any activities will have to take that into account. I am thinking about maybe having a cookie exchange for those that are interested. Something along the lines of bring 3 dozen cookies bagged in groups of 3 and take home the same. (If you know a better way of doing this for a large group please let me know)
There used to be a white elephant gift exchange that was a sort of gag gift, silly gift, or unusual item. I am thinking of reprising this for those that are interested in participating. You would bring an item you no longer want or that you have found in a thrift store or garage sale. You could even buy something new if you want.
Please let me know if there is a game or competition you would like to host or see us play.
Is there something you or your branch would like to perform or present to the group? Let me know and I'll add it to the festivities.
I look forward to hearing your ideas.
