Troop 97 held it’s Christmas party on the night of December 14, 2016. Each troop patrol had to research other scouting organizations outside of the United States and provide a display of that country. The winners are as follows: Flaming Arrow came in First Place with Egypt as their country of choice. Panther came in Second with Ukraine as their country of choice. Hawk came in third with the Philippines. We enjoyed snacks provided by us and played an exciting game of “Dirty Santa,” which involves the scouts walking up to a table and selecting a gift and opening it. Then another scout could walk up to a scout that had a gift that looked interesting to them and steal it. A gift could only be stolen twice, then it is declared “dead,” which meant it could not be grabbed again. The scouts and adults had a great time with this. We ended the night by having our three newest Eagle scouts move their plaque on the advancement board.
