SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Lori Enyart with the Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland joins KOLR10 Daybreak to talk about several exciting upcoming things for the Scouts.

We are planning a large multi troop drive-through booth at Community Blood Center of the Ozarks on Saturday, February 27th from 10:00- 6:00 to celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend.
Cookie sales start this Friday, February 19th.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the biggest girl-led business in the world! When a girl sells a box of Girl Scout cookies to a customer she is doing so much more that providing a yummy treat. Through participation in the Cookie Program girls are learning five essential life skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. 

It’s the tastiest time of the year – Girl Scout cookie time! The Girl Scout Cookie Program has begun with local Girl Scouts going door-to-door to take your order. The Girl Scout Cookie Program runs through April 3, 2016 and includes nine delicious flavors.

The Gluten-free Trios are available only during booth sales at local merchants beginning February 19, 2016.  All Girl Scout Cookies are $5 per box and all proceeds stay within our council to support our local Girl Scouts. 

Find out more about all the cookie options this year on the Girl Scouts of Missouri Heartland web site
