CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) Throughout the next few weeks, you may get a knock at your door. Friday marks the beginning of Girl Scout cookie season.

“We’ve been working really hard leading up to this. Making sure everything is ready and the girls have everything they need, and our wonderful volunteers have everything they need,” Andrea Winfrey, Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming volunteer support manager, said.
The season starts with a cookie rally Friday night where the girls pick up cookie cards, set goals and work on their sales pitches. There will be more than 200 Girl Scouts participating this season in Casper.
“It’s heartwarming to know our program is reaching that many girls. Girls are learning more than just selling through the cookie program. They practice things like customer service, business ethics and money management as well,” Winfrey said.
Lemon-ups are a new cookie that will be available this year. Each cookie contains an inspirational message from the Girl Scouts.
All the money raised from cookie sales stays right here and the girls decide how they want to spend it. Winfrey said if we see the Girl Scouts in the community, ask what their goals are for this season.
The pre-order window will run through Feb. 23 and deliveries will be in late March. Booth sales begin March 27 and cookies can be ordered online until April 19.
