Last week's blizzard didn't stop Girl Scouts from getting cookies! Below in Oswego the sheriff escorted trucks delivering cookies to several volunteers in outlying areas, all part of a drill to see how fast they could distribute emergency supplies in a disaster. Thanks to many other volunteers who weathered the storm to staff depots and pick up troop orders!



Be sure to send us your cookie booth photos to post on our Facebook Page!  If your troop photo has the most likes at the end of the season, you will win your choice of a dedicated shopping experience at one of our boutiques, along with a $5 cookie dough card for each girl; OR a program provided by one of our program staff at your troop meeting!

 

Need to find cookies? Download the Cookie Finder App for your iPhone or Android, or visit girlscoutscookies.org
