Girl Scouts present governor with Girl Scout Cookies
CONCORD, NH – National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend is Feb. 28-March 1. It will now also be Girl Scout Cookie Weekend in New Hampshire, following a proclamation made by Gov. Chris Sununu on Wednesday, Feb. 19.
Five Girl Scouts along with representatives of Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains, the council serving New Hampshire and Vermont, presented the governor with a box of the full variety of Girl Scout Cookies, which were enjoyed right away by the governor and Executive Council.
Girl Scouts are now beginning cookie booth sales, which will continue through the end of March, which allows girls to earn the money to power their own leadership opportunities and adventures. The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls about entrepreneurship, money management, public speaker, decision-making, and financial literacy. Every dollar raised by the Girl Scout Cookie Program stays local, funding membership, camp, community projects, and more right in the girls’ home towns. To find a cookie booth near you, visit www.girlscoutcookies.org, or download the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app to your smartphone.
