For Immediate Release
*** MEDIA ALERT***
Samoa Turns 35!
WASHINGTON--- On January 3, 2011, Girl Scouts will begin knocking on their neighbors' doors taking orders for Girl Scout Cookies. After taking initial orders, Girl Scouts will host cookie booths from February 18 until March 27. The eight delicious cookie varieties available this year are: Thin Mints; Do-si-dos; Samoas; Tagalongs; Lemon Chalet Crèmes; Dulce de Leche; Trefoils; and Thank You Berry Munch.
This year, the Samoa cookie celebrates its 35th birthday! Samoas are the number two top-selling Girl Scout Cookie in the Greater Washington Region; coming in second only to the mighty Thin Mint.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program helps girls learn to be more confident, set goals, manage money, and be part of a team. Proceeds from cookie sales help girls pay for membership, program fees, summer camp, service projects, and much more.
Every Girl Scout cookie purchased is an investment in the next generation of leaders. The Girl Scout Cookie program is the leading entrepreneurial and financial literacy experience for girls. Last year, the Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital boasted the largest cookie sale at 4.7 million boxes and troops earned $2.8 million to invest in service projects, Girl Scout travel and other activities. All proceeds remain in the Greater Washington Region.
