The Girl Scouts of Lakota Council have announced their 44th annual Girl Scout Cookie Sale will begin on Jan. 26 and run through Feb. 12.
Local Girl Scouts will be offering eight varieties of cookies, including the new Aloha Chips, made of macadamia nuts and white fudge chips. The price per box remains at $3 and payment is not due until delivery between March 12 and March 25.
Girl Scouts of Lakota Council participates in this yearly event to help raise money for troop projects and materials, program events, community service projects, volunteer training and support, financial assistance to girls in need for membership dues and event fees, membership extension and to maintain Camp Lakota, a 175-acre camp where girls learn of the out-of-doors, horseback ride and swim.
By participating in the sale, girls learn to set goals, express themselves, answer questions with confidence, handle money and follow through on a commitment. Adult volunteers work with the girls to set realistic gals and to help set a course of action to reach these goals. The girls set personal goals while also working as a team to formulate troop goals to fund troop activity and community service projects.
