The Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania have announced the start of the 2013 Girl Scout Cookie Season. The cookie program will run from Jan. 17 through March 3. This year’s program is themed “What Can a Girl Do?” and continues its tradition of providing girls with an avenue to develop financial literacy and important leadership skills while earning proceeds for troop and council activities for the remainder of the year.
To celebrate the start of the Girl Scout Cookie Sale, the Boyertown Service Unit held a Cookie Kick Off Party last Friday, Jan. 11 at Boyertown Junior High West Cafeteria. The party feaured the ‘Science Tellers: Dragons and Dreams’ program.
The Scouts learned about the science of fire andice through telling a tale of dragons anddreams by using experiments of flash paper, exploding bottles, “cool” dry ice, and much more.
For the first time since 1999, Girl Scouts cookie boxes will feature brand new designs in order to showcase the significance of the program on girls’ lives. The iconic Girl Scout Cookie packages will showcase the five skills that the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
This year the Girl Scouts of the USA is also debuting a brand new cookie flavor, Mango Crèmes, vanilla and coconut cookies filled with a tangy mango-flavored crème enhanced with nutrients derived from fruits.
