Girl Scout Cookie Sale underway If you have the feeling you missed something in January, you're absolutely right! No Girl Scouts came around selling cookies. No, you didn't miss this year's Girl Scout Cookie Sale. It's just being held two weeks later-from February 1 through 12, with delivery in April. There's another change this year, too. There are three new kinds of cookies- making seven varieties in all. In addition to the old favorites--chocolate and vanil- la cremes, shortbread, chocolate mind and oatmeal and peanut butter sandwich- es-you may order Samoas, Tagalongs or Granola cookies. Samoas are a diet-wrecking combina- tion of chocolate and coconut. The Taga- longs are cookies with a layer of peanut butter hidden under a rich chocolate blanket. The crisp Granola cookies are made from all-natural ingredients with no preservatives. Best of all, the price is still only $1.25 a box. The cookie sale is sponsored by the Abnaki Girl Scout Council and is the single most important fund-raising effort of all of the troops in the Council area. Troops receive 20 for each box of cook- ies sold, and use the funds for trips, several-day adventures at Camp Natarswi, and to purchase materials for crafts and other troop projects. Funds received by the Council are used mostly for Camperships-grants which " allow eligible Scouts to attend either Natarswi or one of the day camps. Be- cause inflation has increased operating expenses forthe Council and the troops, the sale becomes more important each year. If you are not contacted by a Girl Scout, you may still order cookies by calling the Council office, at 989-7474. In the Eastpot area cookies may be ordered from the Brownie leader of Troop No. 246, Mrs. Allen (Judy) Flagg at 853-4647.
