Beginning Saturday, January 11, 2014 Queen Anne’s County Girl Scouts will go door-to-door to begin taking pre-orders for Girl Scout Cookies. This year local Girl Scouts will offer the six varieties – Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-si-dos and Savannah Smiles. Cookies are $4.00 per box. Once again this year, girls will be taking donations of Girl Scout cookies for Operation Taste of Home and local community groups. The Operation Taste of Home cookies will be donated to our Armed Forces and food banks in Queen Anne’s County. Customers can donate boxes during pre-order sales and at cookie booth sales, which begin February 14th at local businesses. All of the proceeds—every penny—remain in the area where the cookies are sold. This revenue is used to benefit girls, with some of it remaining in the Girl Scout troop treasuries, and some of it being used to fund Council-led programs and maintain camp properties for Girl Scouts. Queen Anne’s County has over 270 Girl Scouts in 40 troops spread across the county and we continue to grow larger. Individuals interested in purchasing Cookies or donating to Operation Taste of Home may call Robin Lansinger at 410-758-5424 or email at email@example.com.
