Cookie time!

n Plainfield Girl Scout promotes annual sale

PLAINFIELD — Girl Scouts all over the globe are now in the midst of selling their famous cookies, and Plainfield girls are no different.

A few Scouts from Troops 1234, 2666, and 967 were asked to visit the WISH-TV studios in Indianapolis to tape a segment with Dick Wolfsie.

“The girls really seemed to have fun,” said Christa Anderson, Girl Scout leader and mother to one of the girls. “It was fun when we finally got to see the segment on TV.”

Anderson’s daughter, Andrea Simon, was one of the Girl Scouts who helped promote the sell of the cookies. She is a member of Troop 1234.

Simon, 10, is a fourth-grader at Clarks Creek Elementary School.

“The best part of the cookies is selling them to get money for field trips and fun stuff,” Simon said. “I sell them at school and around my neighborhood.”

She said she hopes to continue participating in Girl Scouts and selling cookies. Thin Mints are her favorites.

Andersonsaid she was a Girl Scout when she was a child as well. Her new favorite cookies are the Dulce De Leche.

“But Girl Scouts was not as popular where I grew up,” she said. “I think Girl Scouts has helped her (Andrea) to grow and be more confident.”

She said each year the Girl Scouts get some training on their manners and how to approach people to sell their cookies.

“They also learn about safety,” Anderson said. “You never go selling in your neighborhood by yourself. You must always have an adult present.”

During their training, they work skills such as leadership, marketing, business management, goal setting, teamwork, money management, and budgeting.

The Troops featured in the segment are all members of the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana. The GSCI serves more than 44,000 girls and 18,000 adults in 45 counties.

Cookies are on sale throughout January, February, and March. The initial order from Troops is due by Jan. 25. The “cookie cupboards” then open on Feb. 14. Booth sales normally take place in February and the beginning of March.
