Support the troops - Support Girl Scouts - maybe eat a cookie or two!

 Well, it's almost that time again!  The annual Girl Scout cookie sale officially begins next Thursday, January 17th.

I have certainly eaten my share of cookies over the years, but I have a different perspective this year.  I am the leader of a junior girl scout troop - a "newbie" as we say.  I am very excited & a little overwhelmed at our first cookie sale, as my troop in past years has set record-setting sales!  And, yes, I have to pick-up, distribute & keep track of thousands of boxes over the next 3 weeks.

Please support your local girl scout troops - this fundraiser goes to support many fine programs that develop the character, leadership, and confidence in our girls that we definitely need!

Our council (not sure if this is nation-wide) also supports the 3rd annual "Cookies for the Military".  You can donate any amount you wish (a case of 12 boxes costs just $42.00) & the troop will use that money to send cookies to our military troops overseas.  Last year, because of your donations, we sent over 11,000 boxes through Soldier's Angels & The Forgotten Soldiers Outreach.  Let's keep them smiling & eating a little taste of home!

It's a great deal for all involved - please consider helping.  All your favorites are back - Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Lemonades & new for this year - Cinna-spins packaged in 5 100 calories packs per box!

Ann,

Whoa!  Who can eat just one or two?  Not me!

Mike - I know!  My biggest problem is getting my family to stop eating the inventory - or at least control it!  Those Carmel delites keep calling my name!
