GIRL SCOUT COOKIE SALES: It’s the halfway point for this year’s cookie sales, and Sheryl Guyon shared this update and photo on behalf of one troop:
Girl Scout Troop 40766 wishes to thank the West Seattle Community for all of the cookie sales! They are the top-selling troop in the West Seattle and appreciate all of the support from the community. They are a group of 16 girls from Madison Middle school. The cookie sales support girls in our community and teach responsibility. The troop also recognizes the value of giving back to our community; they have supported Tent City in West Seattle and other neighbors in need. The troop will be selling cookies at QFC in Westwood village from noon to 4:00 pm today. Thanks for your support!
We’d be happy to feature other troops daily in the final week, so yours is welcome to send an update too (firstname.lastname@example.org). Many other troops are out and about selling, and you can find the full list via the Cookie Locator.
