It’s National Girl Scout Cookie weekend!
Katie Patalano, a Brownie from Troop 519, Jane Maciel, a junior from Troop 765 along with Amy Simonini from “A Wish Come True,” joined The Rhode Show to talk more about what this weekend means for The Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England, including Rhode Island.
National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend has become a national holiday for Girl Scout Cookie fans. It will take place February 27–March 1, 2015.
Girls across the country will sell cookies at booths, door to door, and through Digital Cookie, the first national digital platform that enables girls to learn 21st-century skills while selling cookies through their own personalized cookie websites or face-to-face using a mobile transaction app.
The 2015 Cookie Weekend will mark the 98th year of Girl Scouts selling cookies and learning the basic skills and acumen they need to be leaders in business and sales, manage their personal and family finances, and gain self-sufficiency and confidence handling money.
