Girl Scout Cookies


Carriage Towne News

---- — PLAISTOW — Girl Scout Cookie Season is in full swing and the Daisies and Brownies of Plaistow Troop #13050/11190 will hold two upcoming cookies booths where you can come out and show your support while picking up packages of your favorite cookie flavors!

First, the girls will brave the cold outside on Sat., February 23, from 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., at Walmart on Route 125 in Plaistow. Stop on by or get your cookie fix while running your weekend errands. 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. Meals on Wheels is run out of the Vic Geary Center in Plaistow and serves eight surrounding towns. 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! The troop has also decided to use a portion of the profits from their cookie sale to purchase food that will be donated to a local food pantry.

If you are interested in purchasing cookies for yourself or as a donation, please stop by one of the Cookie Booths or send an email to gscookieplaistownh@gmail.com. Delivery can be arranged to nearby towns and the girls will have cookies available until the end of March. Thank You!
