While we have spent the past week focusing on this weekend’s Super Bowl Sunday, next weekend also has a fun event going on- it’s Girl Scout Cookie Weekend! Keelin and I both have fond memories of being Brownies as little girls. I had so much fun at our weekly meet-ups and loved earning badges throughout the year. I remember sitting in my bedroom admiring all the various badges on my sash. I also loved wearing my Brownie uniform to school each week with my Brownie friends.
One thing that many people associate with the Girl Scouts program are their cookies. This annual tradition is the largest fundraiser for local Girl Scout troops. In fact, after the costs of the cookies are paid for, all revenue stays with the local Girl Scout council. Cookie selling also helps girls with five life skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
Fellow Massachusetts residents: more information on the Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts can be found on their website Time Well Spent. They will also be hosting Fork It Over, a competitive, culinary fundraising event featuring some of the region’s top chefs who create original appetizers and desserts using Girl Scout cookies and present their creations to the public and a distinguished panel of judges at Coral Seafood on Thursday, February 6 from 5 – 7 pm. More details and ticket information can be found on Time Well Spent website.
Starting February 7th through 9th, please support your neighborhood Girl Scout for National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend! You can also visit the National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend website to learn more about how to buy cookies. You can also follow Girl Scouts on Pinterest and Facebook for more cookie information!
What’s your favorite Girl Scout Cookie? For me, it has to be a toss-up between Thin Mints and Samoas…I can’t wait for my boxes to arrive!
