I had the pleasure of joining with the scouts again, when my daughter became a brownie scout. Our school didn't have scouts, because of the shortage of leaders. A friend and I volunteered to lead a troop. Our troop was so big we had to hold meetings in the school gym. It was a great experience for my daughter and me. I went on to work with the local leaders on programs for the whole town. These women had been scouts and leaders as well. We had fun sharing our memories and stories.
The picture above is what the uniforms looked like, when I was a scout.
This picture is what the original cookie box looked like with only one cookie...the sandwich... in vanilla and chocolate.here is a little history of the cookie sales.
Girl Scout Cookies are a familiar part of American culture. For more than 80 years, Girl Scouts, with the enthusiastic support of their families, have helped ensure the success of local Girl Scout Cookie activities. From its earliest beginnings to its current popularity, the sale of cookies has helped Girl Scouts have fun, develop valuable life skills and make the world a better place by helping to support Girl Scouting in their communities. Girls are proud that their efforts provide resources for their local Girl Scout councils and for their own Girl Scout troops.
The cookies will be delivered at the end of Feb, or the first part of March. We had visitors last year, when they came and I let the kids take them home. I hope we don't have to share this year...I love those mint ones :)
