Girl Scouts hosted a drive-thru mega cookie booth in the Cabela's parking lot in Short Pump on Saturday and set up hundreds of boxes. "These skills are essential for 21st-century leadership". No, it's not the Super Bowl or tax returns - it's the beginning of Girl Scout cookie season! This year, the diner put out a request on its Facebook page asking troops to make the case for why they should be chosen for the sales. National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend starts Friday, scouts will be at five different locations three in Fresno, one in Kingsburg, and one in Visalia. Now in its fourth year, and with Dell's support since 2015, Digital Cookie continues to keep Girl Scout programming current and relevant to today's girls.
It's Girl Scouts cookie season and if you're a fan of the sweet treats, you're probably on the lookout for a scout who's selling them. "When I was a Girl Scout, the cookie program taught me how to create my own opportunities, and I've used the entrepreneurial skills I learned selling cookies throughout my career". Last weekend, 1.1 million packages of Girl Scout Cookies were delivered to Central Virginia in preparation for this event and other traditional cookie booths and sales taking place from now until March 30th.
The troop that submits the best "ask" gets the cookie sales.
Every year, the Girl Scout Cookie Program adopts a new mascot and motto that expresses what it means to be a Girl Scout.
