The Girl Scouts Cookie Program is about more than just delicious cookies. By participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, girls learn five skills that last into adulthood — goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics. The program also raises funds to support Troop and Council programs. The benefits of the Cookie Program have been hailed by many of today’s businesswomen, who cite selling Girl Scout Cookies as their first step toward successful careers.
Girl Scout Troop 591 reminds the crowd cookies are coming soon with their float in the Centreville Christmas Parade on Dec. 7.
