Girl Scouts made it easy.
You've probably seen the Girl Scouts out and about, selling cookies in your neighborhood or at the grocery store. It's that time of year and as the sign behind them says, "some things should never change." This group was at the back door of Vroman's Bookstore on Colorado Blvd.
Because I love cookies I was glad to see them. But because I don't need cookies, we struck a deal. I bought two boxes and the girls let me take their picture (with permission of available parents and a scout leader, of course). Then one of the girls told me I could donate my cookies to American soldiers overseas. Perfect! Now a few lonely soldiers know the Girl Scouts and their patrons are thinking of them.
The Girl Scout Cookie program is huge; it supports many worthy programs, from leadership projects to summer camp. Did you know the Girl Scouts organization is 100 years old this year? Yep. It's The Year of the Girl.
You can buy your cookies from these very girls this coming Saturday, outside Vroman's.
