Cottonwood Girl Scouts held a baked food sale last Monday to earn money for new books associated with a change in the Girl Scout program.  We appreciate Arnzen Drug for allowing us to set up and sell by their business.  Also, we’d like to thank the Cottonwood Chronicle for printing our information and getting it out to the public.  Last but not least, thank you to everyone who donated money or bought items that the girls and their families made.  Weather permitting we might have another baked food sale toward the middle or end of December. If anyone is interested in joining Girl Scouts or has questions about the program you can contact Heather at 208-816-1452 or Shari at 962-3559.  Thanks again to our great community for your support!
