Mayors who could not participate on Friday, January 25 have found other ways to support cookie sales. Mayor Duffy of Worland, Wyoming will sign a proclamation on Tuesday, February 5th naming February 8th the First National Girl Scout Cookie Day! Girls will be selling cookies to Mayor Brown in Cody, Wyoming on Monday, January 28th at 4:30 at her office.

Girl Scout cookie season begins on January 26th. Girls will be selling door to door from January 26th to February 10th; Cookie Booth sales will be March 16 – April 7.

Did you know that girls are able to attend summer camp, travel the world and assist in community projects with the funds their troop receives from each box of cookies? Cookie sales are part of the financial literacy program of Girl Scouts, teaching girls 5 skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
