It's Girl Scout cookie time!
Have you been wishing for those one-of-a-kind cookies that
you can only purchase at a certain time of the year? Have you been
thinking of Thin Mints? Craving Caramel Delights? Longing for
Lemonades? Well, you are in luck because Cook County Girl Scouts have
cookies and they are selling!
Cook County Girl Scouts now offer direct sales, which means you don’t
have to order your cookies and wait weeks to get them. The cookies are
here in Cook County, so most of the time when you buy, you receive
your cookies immediately if they are in stock.
So find your favorite Girl Scout and buy cookies for yourself, your
relatives, and your friends. Cookies are a great way to say “Thank
you” or “I’m thinking of you!”
And whether you enjoy them all yourselves or whether you share, buying
cookies from a Girl Scout is more than just handing over money for a
treat. For the girls, selling cookies teaches goal setting, decision-
making, money management, people skills and business ethics. All
things essential to leadership, to success and to life.
For nearly 100 years, Girl Scouts have been selling cookies, earning
money to help support their troops’ activities and to contribute to
their communities. And Cook County Girl Scouts are happy to carry on
So, look for your favorite scout to buy some Peanut Butter Patties,
Thanks-A-Lots or, new this year, Mango Cremes.
