Happy Girl Scout Day! What's Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie?

Tacoma Police Two men tried to rob Girl Scouts outside store

"Girl Scout Week is the flawless opportunity for girls to connect with one another and to celebrate the incredible experiences that Girl Scouting provides year-round", said GSGWM CEO Tricia Mellor. One of the men had a gun tucked into his waistband.

Two men attempted to rob Girl Guides selling cookies outside a Tacoma, Washington, store on Saturday evening, police said. She said that although rare, there had been similar incidents in the past, reported Komo News. We are grateful that no one was harmed, although of course they are shaken.

Girl Scouts from the Lee Service Unit gathered by the river Sunday in Dixon to kick off Girl Scout Week and show just what it means to be a GIRL (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader).

The mayors of Jamestown, Olean, Dunkirk, Buffalo, Lockport and Niagara Falls, and the City Manager of Batavia, are all scheduled to meet with Girl Scout troops on Monday. The gunman first posed as a customer, then came back holding a pistol and stole all the cookie money, the East Bay Times reports.

The Girl Scouts have an online Cookie Locator to help find the nearest place to buy cookies.
