What's Up Netami

Netami is really focused on generating interest in ceremonies and has worked hard to get another ceremonies team. Our activity in December was a White Elephant gift exchange where we each brought in a gift and took turns of someone picking or stealing someone's gift and trying to not have yours stolen. It is definitely a favorite amongst the Netami Chapter and we look forward to hosting this activity again in December.
