Girl Scout cookies now on sale

Now through March, Harvard Girl Scouts will have the once-a-year treat, Girl Scout cookies, available for sale to the public. This year we have eight varieties including the new Rah-rah raisin, the gluten free Toffee-tastic, and many of your old favorites.

Price is still $4 per box and your purchase helps girls fund their troop activities while learning the basics of fiscal responsibility and money management.

Look for booth sales at the Transfer Station in the coming weeks, or ask your neighborhood Brownie or Girl Scout. If you need help finding a local Scout, please contact Liz Hawkes at 978 456 8358 or emh38@yahoo.com.

Your continued support of Harvard Girl Scouts is appreciated by all girl members and adult volunteers.
