Today is the big day, the start of the 2019 Girl Scout Cookie season!

This is the largest annual fundraiser for the Girls Scouts and CEO Becky Burton had this to say via Everything Lubbock:

“A box of Girl Scout Cookies is so much more than a sweet treat,” said Becky Burton, ceo of Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains Council.  “Girls learn the skills they will need to be tomorrow’s business leaders and entrepreneurs - skills like goal-setting, decision-making, and people skills, which professionals in every field need in order to succeed. Troops are also using their cookie proceeds to contribute to our community right now, through incredible service projects.”

If you want cookies you can download the Cookie Finder app, or by going to www.girlscoutcookies.org.

And save me a box of thin mints!
