Expect to see Girl Scouts scattered around the Riverbend this weekend.  Friday through Sunday, January 10-12 is the first Cookie Booth Weekend of the season.  You will be able to buy Girl Scout Cookies straight off of the table at any of these spots, and then turn around and order more through the traditional troop orders January 11 through January 25. 

Tricia Higgins, Girl Scouts Communications & Marketing Manager, says there are many varieties of cookie, but one continues to outsell all the rest.

Proceeds from the cookie sales go to fund various programs, including programming, camp maintenance and financial assistance for girls who would otherwise be unable to afford to be a girl scout.
