Girl Scout Cookies
More than six dozen military men and women are almost home Saturday night. The 461st of Fargo just completed a training exercise in the Dominican Republic. They came through the Armed Forces Service Center at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Saturday evening.
This Saturday, the Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys will start its annual cookie sales fundraiser. Last year, the 41,000-strong Girl Scouts River Valleys council sold 4.3 million boxes and brought in $17 million. Each girl sold an average of 146 boxes. “I can learn how to sell things and operate a small business basically,” said Girl Scout Sarah Albert of Brooklyn Park.
