Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri (GSEM) Troops visited fire departments and police stations throughout the St. Louis area, enjoying "Milk and Cookies" with police officers and fire fighters in honor of the first National Girl Scout Cookie Day, Friday, Feb. 8, according to a release from a news release from the Girl Scouts.
In Crestwood, Daisies and Brownies from Troops 3092, 2893, 2742 and 757 gathered at the firehouse at 1 Detjen Dr. There, the girls sang a song and performed a cheer for the men on duty before serving them cookies, milk or juice.
In addition, Girl Scouts were stationed at a cookie booth outside the James S. McDonnell USO at Lambert St. Louis International Airport with all cookie orders placed being donated to U.S. military personnel.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led enterprise in the country, engaging girls with five skills they will use throughout their lives-goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Many successful women leaders say that their first entrepreneurial experience came from selling Girl Scout Cookies.
