The Gift Exchange:

We'll be doing a gift exchange at dinner. Quality home made goods, to an ambiguous gift no more than $15.

Finalized meeting time is roughly 5:45pm at the Bellevue Fire station. I'll be collecting the food to drop off at a Northwest Harvest location for donation. The time is subject to change to accommodate better timing.
