…do my duty to God and my country, to help other people at all times and obey the Girl Scout laws.” That’s how I remember the pledge, anyway.
And I sold Girl Scout cookies – for 50 cents a box. Thin mints, peanut butter, shortbread and I think a fourth selection were the boxes I lugged through my Minnesota neighborhood.
Girl Scout cookie lovers now have many options – and a new one this year: the gluten-free, chocolate chip, shortbread cookie. The treat will be available in 20 test markets.
No matter what they sell me, I always open the door to young people who are seeking to better themselves and the community. It’s part of my on-going pledge to “help other people at all times.”
