Michiana Girl Scouts to begin annual cookie sale

Abilene area girl scouts are expected to pick up more than 50,000 packages of cookies Saturday to kick-off the 2018 season. Cookies are reported to be available for delivery in February.

For over 100 years, Girl Scouts has been the experts on girls.

Select your cookies, place your order, and complete your transaction. Cookies will be sold through March 4.

Peterson adds the success of the Cookie Program helps to support the troops and invest in their communities.

Selling cookies is a strategic business, Dillon said. "And if you want to be a cashier or something, you learn about money management". Some troops use it to pay their registration for the next year, some use it to buy uniforms, some use it to travel. In addition, the group will host various events during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend from February 23 to 25.

Girl Scouts will be showing off their cookie-selling skills by participating in booths (starting Jan 19), door-to-door sales, cookie drive-thrus and digital sales through March 4.

To celebrate the start of Girl Scout cookie season, we're asking our readers to cast a vote for their favorite type of Girl Scout cookie.

The selling season, which runs January 13 through March 4, will bring cookie lovers classic flavors like Thin Mints, Samoas and Do-Si-Dos, as well as the return of the S'mores cookie, which was introduced past year.
