has 25 members coming to the party. There is a $20.00 limit on gifts for the
Chinese Gift Exchange. Gifts must be wrapped. Jim Stewart was asked to explain
the Chinese Gift Exchange, but then he called upon Mitch King, TCAS Vice
President. Here is how it will work: Anyone bring a gift will be given a number.
Then numbers will be called for that person to pick their gift. The first person
will pick from all the gifts and unwrap it. The second person can pick from any
of the unwrapped gifts or choose from one that has already been unwrapped.
If a gift is chosen from someone, that person then picks another
unwrapped gift. When everyone has been called and all gifts chosen, the first
person than can chose a gift from anyone!
