Expect to see Girl Scouts scattered around the Riverbend this weekend.  Friday through Sunday, February 26-18 is National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend.  You will be able to buy Girl Scout Cookies straight off of the cookie booths that will be scattered about the region.

Tricia Higgins, Girl Scouts Communications & Marketing Manager tells The Big Z you will be able to find tables in many of the popular shopping areas.

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.  You can donate your cookies to their caring program, Operation: Sweet Treats to benefit the military.  For more information, click here: www.gsofsi.org
