Cottonwood Girl Scouts attended a cookie rally in Moscow on Sunday, February 5th.  At the rally the girls learned about the cookies they will be selling, safety while selling, and worked on a service project by writing letters to active military personnel.  A new lemon cookie, Savannah Smiles, will be available to help celebrate the 100th birthday for Girl Scouts.  Girls will start their pre-orders for cookies on Friday, February 10th.  Cookies will be available for delivery around the 3rd to 4th week in March.  We also plan to have booth sales toward the end of March or first of April.  If you have any questions about the Girl Scout cookie sale you can call Heather at 208-816-1452 or Shari at 962-3559.  Thank you in advance for your support of our Girl Scout troop.  In the back row were Moscow area girls dressed in Girl Scout Cookie costumes.
