The cookies may change but the lessons stay the same for Girl Scouts in Door and Kewaunee counties. The almost century-old practice of the organization selling the baked treats will kick off locally January 18th with the introduction of the new gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie. Even though some of the cookie varieties and names have changed over the years, Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes Director of Communications Lee Snodgrass says the lessons learned over the coming weeks have been as consistent as their popular Thin Mints.
Snodgrass says all of the proceeds from the cookie sales stay local and are divided between the council, the troop, and the members to help pay for programming and other services. There are over 30 troops in Door and Kewaunee counties.
