Are you ready to buy some Girl Scout cookies?

This just in from the Girl Scouts…

Girl Scouts across Connecticut will be offering something sweet to voters this election season. More than 600 cookie booths located throughout the state at schools, grocery stores, and other businesses will allow cookie lovers to stock up for a limited time on their favorite treats from November 3 – November 11. Additionally, many of the booths will offer customers the opportunity to purchase cookies for Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s Cookies for Heroes program. It’s a great way to thank our service women and men for serving overseas and at home!

There’s more to cookies than just what’s in the box. The Girl Scout Cookie Program is a hands-on leadership and financial literacy program through which girls learn five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. The Cookie Program shows a girl what she can do: great things. This program is a part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, which helps girls discover new things about themselves and others, connect with new friends and learn about other cultures and places, and to take action by finding ways to make their community or the world a better place.
