Among the best memories for Troop 26 scouts is the annual Troop Christmas party. For years we have hosted a party for our special friends from Woodland Park and several other special needs facilities around the state. We have a band and we dance and Santa gives gifts and we have cookies and the special kids look forward to it every year. It is one of our yearly highlights. In this photo I have my special Christmas tie, not exactly “official” BSA gear, but the kids like it, and my friend on my left is wearing a balloon hat. Pretty impressive.
