Secret Pals is a great way to enjoy learning about others in the club. It is open to any paid up member. You are asked to sign up for a year at a time. There is no cost. The Secret Pals chairman  will send you the name of another club member who has signed up and you can send birthday, anniversary, Christmas cookie cutter related gifts or cards or just monthly mail to let them know that someone is thinking of them but never signing your name. Part of the fun is trying to guess who is sending the gifts. You can send as many or as few as you like. Meanwhile, another member has been given your name and will be sending things to you, also anonymously.  You reveal who you are to your gift recipient at Christmas and then the process starts over again with a new secret pal when you sign up again. The Secret Pals get together at each convention over a meal and sometimes there is even a special cookie cutter given to the participants. There have been many great friendships forged from these beginnings.
