LAWTON, OK (TNN) - A Lawton girl scout troop is getting ready for cookie selling season, starting with a cookie rally that happened on Saturday.
Members of troop 3017 were able to attend the cookie rally carnival at Cleveland Elementary School with an admission of two canned goods, which will be donated to the Lawton Food bank.
It was their first time hosting any city-wide event.
A Lawton Police Officer also came to the rally to teach the girl scouts about how to stay safe while selling cookies.
One mother said she is happy to share a family legacy of being a girl scout with her daughter.
“This is my daughter’s first year. I, myself, am a former girl scout, a long time ago. And I’m just so excited that she’s in the girl scouts this year and she’s learning so much. She’s making new friends, not only in her school, but district wide. So, I’m so proud of her and so happy for her,” said Jesseca McDonald.
There were several games at the carnival, and the girls learned about proper sales etiquette.
The troop leader said the rally was a fun way to prepare for the upcoming cookie season.
“Booth sales will be starting soon, and you’ll have an opportunity to purchase cookies at various locations and businesses around your city, your community. So, they will be available very soon, just in a couple weeks. So get ready, cause they’re coming,” said Esther Slaughter.
Slaughter said they will be selling cookies for about four weeks, starting in February. She said if you are unable to purchase them in person, you can order cookies online and have them delivered to your home.
