Girl Scouts continue annual tradition

It’s that time again – Girl Scout cookie time.
Trefoils, Thin Mints, Samoas, and five other mouth-watering cookies with names like Thank U Berry Munch and Savannah Smiles are back as Girl Scouts are now taking orders.
Tina Lassiter, assistant troop leader of Girl Scout Troop 2719, service unit 141, said, “Girl Scout cookies are always sought after. Now is the time to stock up and support your local Girl Scout troop. Cookies will be in around Feb. 7, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Folks will start to see us around the county at booth sales right after that.”
With approximately 15 Girl Scout troops in Warren County, area residents are likely to see girls selling cookies outside Walmart, Foodland Plus and Kroger in early February.
Every year, Girl Scouts exercise and hone their business skills to sell approximately 200 million boxes of Girl Scout cookies.
Lassiter said her troop, which consists of 17 girls ages kindergarten through grade 10, meets at Covenant Academy and is led by troop leader Lana Whitlock. The girls hope to use the money made from cookie sales on outdoor camping experiences.
All cookies remain $3.50 per box, the same as the last 12 years and will be sold until March 2.
The eight types of cookies available are: Do-Si-Dos, Dulce de Leche, Samoas, Savannah Smiles, Tagalongs, Thank U Berry Munch, Thin Mints and Trefoils.
