Harlow Gallery Executive Director Deborah Fahy suggested the idea of having a Girl Scout cookie sale at the art gallery. “The Harlow Gallery hosts many community events and we are very appreciative of the opportunity to have a sale there,” noted troop leader Sara Hodgkins. “Girl Scout cookie sales allow the girls to practice their communication and customer service skills with the public,” she added.

Through the cookie sales activity, girls develop important leadership skills they will use throughout their lives.
