Girl Scout Cookies Go On Sale Saturday

Scouts around the area will be peddling cookies.

The Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri will kick off their annual cookie drive this Saturday. On Cookie Go! Day, as the kickoff is called, girls will begin taking orders and raising money to benefit Girl Scouts.

The cookies will come in the same seven flavors as last year: Thanks-A-Lot, Lemonades, Shout Out!, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Peanut Butter Patties, Thin Mints and Caramel deLites.

Girl Scouts from troops across eastern Missouri, from St. Louis to north in Putnam Country to south in Ste. Genevieve, will begin selling cookies on Saturday, Jan. 21 at $3.50 per package.

All proceeds from cookie sales stay within the community to benefit local girls. Troops use the money for everything from field trips to community service projects; with these funds, Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri can also deliver programs for girls, provide training for adult volunteers, and maintain our three local Girl Scout camps.

I’m in! and I hope others will join me in supporting this great cause. and Thank you Mr. Harris for bringing this to our attention and passing on all the information we need to help! Our solders really appreciate everything they get from us, a card, a letter, GS Cookies. All those (and more) mean more than you’ll ever know and it’s the least we can do to remind them we are here for them and support them and appreciate their sacrifices for their country. I will be contacting them and donating! Thank You Mr. Harris and thanks to the Faces of Freedom Organization for their great work. As for jean whitney what is your comment for? Seemed condescending, like you think the readers aren’t smart enough to understand Mr Harris’s comments, so adding your comment was supposed to clear things up? I understood Mr. Harris just fine! It’s your comment that has me puzzled. Have you been drinking again?
