Girl Scout Cookie orders now being taken

Girl Scout Cookie sales begin Saturday January 13th and run through Sunday February 25th

"These substances go by the street names of Carmel deLites, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Thanks-A-Lot, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Shortbread and S'mores".

Girl Scout cookie season is here to break your New Year's resolutions - but this year you can feel good about it.

The Cookies-4-Heroes program has been used by other troops, like the Girl Scouts of CT who host a website allowing online purchases to be sent to military men and women both domestic and overseas. The program focuses on five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics, which all have aspects that are essential to leadership, success and life.

Cookies are $4, with the exception of Trios, which are $5.

"The sales start Saturday and the girls take order forms and they can call friends and family to take cookie orders", said Parsons.

The cost per box will be $4, and the sale will run through March 4.

It is natural. When we think of Girl Scouts, we think of cookies.

According to gsoh.org, the first known cookie sale by the Girl Scouts was in 1917. The program also raises funds to support troop and council activities. This revenue is used to benefit girls, some of it directly by remaining in the Girl Scout troop treasuries, and some of it indirectly by funding council-led programs for Girl Scouts.

According to Silver Sage Council spokeswoman Erin Gorringe, the Girl Scout S'mores cookie, which was first introduced past year, sold out in presales before the general public was able to purchase them.
