It’s time for Girl Scout Cookies!

Yum! It’s time for Girl Scout Cookies! Yes, they’re awesomely delicious. But buying Girl Scout Cookies is about so much more than just handing over money for a box of treats. It’s about having fun and making new friends. And it’s about the skills a girl gains from interacting directly with you - the cookie customer! It’s about the experience of running her very own cookie business, working with others - and building a lifetime of confidence as she learns skills essential to leadership, success, and life.

Pendleton County Girl Scouts Troop 465 will be set up at the St. Xavier Fish Fry every Friday through March 18 selling cookies. Pick up a box of your classic favorites from Thin Mints to Peanut Butter Patties! Support your local Girl Scouts while satisfying your sweet tooth.

If you would like to purchase cookies or are interested in joining Girl Scouts contact Jennifer Straus, Service Unit Manager, at 859-391-4737. Volunteers are always needed as well.
