Girl Scouts to sell cookies The annual Girl Scout cookie sale will kick-off on Sunday, March 7, at 1 p.m. at the W.H. Over Museum.
A cookie donation table will be set up to collect funds to purchase a historical mannequin for the W.H. Over Museum. The museum plans a display of historical clothing for the summer of 1999, and the mannequin purchase will be the Scouts' spring community project.
The Vermillion Scouting program consists of troops of Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette, or Senior Scouts, with participation by girls from ages 5 through 17. Girl Scouting began in the United States in 1912, and grew from an initial 18 girls to nearly 3.3 million today.
Sales of Girl Scout cookies are the primary fundraiser for both the Girl Scout councils and the troops. Money from the sale of cookies supports local Girl Scout camps, and other activities and programs. Individual troops earn money for their own activites and "cookie dough" vouchers for use at summer camps or programs. Information about the annual cookie sale and the Girl Scouting program will be available at the kick-off.
Girls will take cookie orders from March 13 – 23. For more information, contact Vermillion Neighborhood Chairperson Caitlin Collier at 624-8060.
