They will have all your old favorites like Samoas, Thin Mints, Do Si Dos, Tagalongs, and Trefoils, as well as a few other varieties that might delight you. Cookies are $4.00 per box and adorable smiles are free!

The girls will also have their cookies available as the democratic process unfolds at Plaistow Town Voting on Tues., March 12, at Pollard School. The polls will be open from 7:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. and the girls will be manning their booth from 4:30-8:00 p.m. Do your civic duty and then pick up a box of cookies to show your support for these wonderful girls.

If you are not tempted by these classic sweet treats, but would like to show your support for the girls, you can also purchase boxes of cookies to be donated. This year, the girls have chosen to collect donated boxes cookies which will be delivered, along with handmade cards, to every Meals on Wheels recipient in the Greater Plaistow area.

Imagine how it will brighten someone’s day to receive a delicious box of cookies and a card made by a caring Girl Scout! The girls have set a goal to collect more than 120 donated boxes. This will be quite an achievement for these enthusiastic first and second graders and they aren’t done yet!
