Cookie season has started! Girl Scouts have been taking preorders for about a week.  Cookies ordered now will be available toward the end of March and the girls will start delivering them at that time.  Our troop will also have a booth sale or two at the end of March or first of April.  We will have the time and location posted at a later date.  This is the main fundraising for our Girl Scout troop and we appreciate the community’s support.  If you have any questions about cookie sales or the Girl Scout program you can call Heather at 208-816-1452 or Shari at 962-3559.
