Girl Scouts are selling cookies at area retailers. Sales started Feb. 20 and will continue through mid-March. Several area stores have agreed to allow the girls to set up outside their doors. The girls are learning money management and math skills while selling cookies at these booths.
Grayson County, and most of Kentucky, is known as “Samoa sellers” because Samoas are the top seller. Across most of the United States, Thin Mints are the top seller.
In addition to those favorites, Tagalongs and Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils and the lemony Savannah Smiles are part of the flavors for this year. An oatmeal-raisin cookie, Rah Rah Raisin, was introduced last year and is still available along with the gluten-free Toffee Tastic flavor.
Girl Scouts are ready to sell if you are willing to buy. Instead of buying to eat, Girl Scouts have an Operation Cookie Project for donations of cookies to our military. This way Girl Scout supporters can support their girls and their soldiers at the same time.
Grayson County troop leaders are Jodie Hester, Joanie Powell, Sam Kimber, Missy Mudd and Deanna Lasley. Ask a Girl Scout about cookie sales or Operation Cookie.
