Girl Scouts to begin selling cookies
On Jan. 16, throughout Southcentral Alaska, Girl Scouts will be taking Girl Scout cookie preorders. Cookies will be delivered beginning March 12. Girl Scouts will be selling cookies at several area stores on the weekends from March 12 through April 4. There are eight different cookies, Tagalongs, Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils and All Abouts. Two new cookies are, Double Dutch, a chocolate cookie with chocolate chips, and Lemon Coolers, a bite-sized cookie with lemon flavor in a vanilla cookie, covered with powdered sugar.
Revenues from last year's Girl Scout cookie program activities were used to fund troop field trips and community service projects. More than 700 girls were able to attend Girl Scout day camps or sleep-away camps as a direct result of the cookie sale. For more information about the cookie sale, call (800) 478-7448.
