Girl Scouts go extra mile to sell cookies

It's good to see youths participating in the community, and Girl Scout Troop 47888 at Memorial Recreation Center did just that.

Although the weather was great and most people wanted to just enjoy the fun in the sun, some of the Scouts in the troop decided to forego the fun and dedicate their time to the annual Girl Scout cookie sale at Valley Mall.

In fact, two of those Scouts, Timisha Ware and Tykeia Russ, went the extra mile and manned each and every cookie booth at one time or another, and cookie manager Monique Broadus couldn't have been prouder and extends her warmest thank you for a job well done.

Broadus also wanted to extend her heartfelt thank you to the other Girl Scouts who participated in the cookie sales and cookie booths.


"They did such a great job, especially the girls that worked hard at the cookie booth," she said.

Additionally, she extends a thank you to Paula Burnett.

"Without her, it wouldn't have been possible as I needed the extra volunteer and I thank her," Broadus said.

And of course, all of this was made possible by Troop Leader Jane Barvir.
