By The Staff

Local Girl Scouts will soon be out selling cookies to the general public. Advanced sales start Jan. 11, and booth sales begin Feb. 28.

Cookie-lovers everywhere will still be able to purchase the classic Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Trefoils and All Abouts. In addition, Girl Scouts are introducing two new members of the cookie family - the Lemon Chalet Crme and the sugar-free Chocolate Chips cookie. All Girl Scout Cookies contain zero trans fats per serving.

Proceeds from the cookie program help troops pay for their activities and adventures, as well as allow the Girl Scout Council to support its programs. The cookie program also helps Girl Scouts learn the vital skills of goal setting, teamwork and money management.

The annual Girl Scout Cookie program is the council's biggest fundraiser and depends on the public's support to make it successful. When you purchase Girl Scout cookies, you're not only satisfying your sweet tooth, but you're also helping our girls grow into strong, successful young women.
