Girl Scouts starting annual cookie sale

It's that time of year again when Girl Scouts are out selling cookies.

Neighborhood Girl Scouts are taking orders from Feb. 6-22, with delivery dates of March 16-20. There will be cookie shops March 21-April 25.

Cookies are $4 per box, and the local troop receives 50 cents per box sold.

Cookies to choose from include Carmel Delites, Shortbread, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Peanut Butter Patties, Lemonades and Daisy Go Rounds.

You can also donate a box to troops in Iraq or to the local food pantry.

The Detroit Lakes Girl Scouts held a sleepover/cookie rally Friday night, with 79 girls and their leaders at the Community Alliance Church. They played games, created cookie ads and learned about selling Girl Scout cookies.
