Time to Buy Your Girl Scout Cookies!

Thin Mints are back just in time for your new years resolution to EAT MORE COOKIES! If you would like to order cookies from a 3rd grade Lafayette Girl Scout troop please send an email detailing your order, name & phone number please. When they arrive in early February we will deliver them to you and collect payment. Sales end in just 7 days! Details about kinds of cookies and costs are as follows:

$4.00/box
Savannah Smiles: lemon
Trefoils: shortbread
Do-Si-Dos: peanut-butter oatmeal
Samoas: carmel, coconut & chocolate
Tagalongs: peanut butter patties
Thin Mints: vegan!
$5.00/box
S’Mores: loved in our house when microwaved
Toffee-Tastic: gluten-free buttery cookies with toffee bits

Funds raised from cookie sales allows our girls to donate to a charity of the troop's choice, donate to a fund that allows other girls around the city to participate in Girl Scouts even if their family does not have the funds needed to so and some of the revenue generated also helps fund a small party at the end of the year. We cant do all these great things without your support. AND, if you don't want cookies in your house you can make a donation to fund cookies to send to our troops. (Any dollar amount donated is greatly appreciated.)

THANK YOU from Troop 4462,
