Girl Scout cookies have arrived


If you love Girl Scout cookies, your mouth may be watering tonight. Cookies have arrived at the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia headquarters in Albany.      

Friday afternoon girls began picking the boxes they pre-sold so they can deliver them. The cookie program is by far the organization's largest fundraiser of the year, and it teaches girls good lessons.

"The girls learn the five business skills that we set forth in our program. This is a great opportunity for troops to get the proceeds and things that they need to supply them throughout the year. So this is a real exciting time for girls," said Tiffany Stewart, Senior product sales manager.       

Cookies go on sale next Friday for folks who didn't pre-order boxes, so start looking for your favorite Girl Scout cookies.
