Friday, March 25 marked the first day of the 2016 Cookie Booth Sale Season. Girl Scouts from Troops 2102 and 5161 were up with the sun and the cast of KREM2 News to share in the excitement of the most anticipated day of the year.
When a KREM2 Reporter inquired about the trip the girls were planning, Girl Scout Cadette, Lainy McCabe, quickly responded, "we're going to the Seattle Zoo!" Troop 2102 is working hard to meet their cookie goals so they can use the funds to cover the traveling and lodging expenses for their trip to the west side of the state. Lainy is especially anxious to learn about the interesting animals exhibited at the Woodland Park Zoo. Her favorite animal is a Panda. Though the Woodland Park Zoo doesn't have the well-known giant Pandas that are native to central China, they do home Red Pandas, also known as the "firefox," which are native to the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China.
If you or your troop has special plans for your Cookie Sale proceeds, we would love to hear about them. Share your goals and stories with us on our GSEWNI Facebook page.
