In addition we know what great cookie makers we have in our group.  Let's also give these young men a package of Holiday Cookies.  "A Cookie Exchange"!!  I'm sure they don't get homemade cookies!   We ask each member to bring 3-6 dozen "small" cookies (or more) and after the meeting we will setup a distribution line to fill up the cookie gift boxes. .   Wednesday December 3 7:00 - 8:00 VOLUNTEER:  Mt.
