Senior Girl Scout Troop 518 will host a cookie sale Saturday, March 16 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Harlow Gallery, 160 Water Street in Hallowell. The cookies freeze well and cost $4.00 per box.
“We look forward to another successful cookie sale at Harlow Gallery and we are very appreciative of the gallery’s support of Girl Scouts”, noted troop leader Sara Hodgkins. While the booth sale provides the public with one of the last chances to purchase their favorite Girl Scout cookies, troop members learn important life-skills like goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
The troop members plan to use their earnings for a fall 2013 trip to Savannah, Ga., to visit the birthplace of Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low. The cookie sale is one of several fundraisers planned for the trip. Girl Scouts of Maine provides services and support to over 16,000 girl and adult members statewide.
