Each department received 10 boxes of cookies to share with their respective members. The gift was made possible through a donation from First National Bank and Trust of Clinton (#2 Kelli Ct), facilitated by Matt Hall, bank employee and father of troop member Evy Hall. Troop co-leader Loretta Woodbury was instrumental in contacting the various departments to send representatives to the meeting.
