Girl Scouts will start cookie sales It's cookie time again! New for 2003-2004, Pi�atas are full of surprises. Just like a real pi�ata � and like every Girl Scout � it's what's inside that counts! Pi�atas start with a luscious cookie that is iced on the bottom.
Then, they're filled with a lip smacking jam that is bursting with strawberry flavor. To top it off, they're sprinkled with cinnamon crumb topping and laced with a delicate white sugar glaze.
The Girl Scouts of Sioux Trails Council will be taking orders from March 13 to March 28. Cookies will begin being delivered April 17.
Expect a Girl Scout to appear on your doorstep or to ask for your order at church, school, or in front of the grocery store. For just $3 per box you can enjoy your fill of Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Shortbread and Animal Treasures.
If you prefer a reduced fat variety, ask for Reduced Fat Lemon Pastry Cr�mes. And be sure to try the newest Girl Scout cookie, Pi�atas.
"This is about much more than just selling cookies," said Kim McCormick, executive director. "The girls are involved in every aspect of the sale � from planning, to selling, to deciding how the money raised is spent.
In the process, the girls learn some very valuable life skills like goal setting, communication, teamwork, and economic independence." About 70 percent of the proceeds from every box sold go directly to support Girl Scouting in our local area.
Look for Girl Scouts of Sioux Trails Council selling cookies in the next few weeks. Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) is the world's pre-eminent organization for girls.
It has a membership of more than 3.5 million girls and adults. Founded in 1912, GSUSA continues to cultivate values, social conscience, and self-esteem in young girls. In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives.
These include strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. In Girl Scouting, girls discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together.
