Shameless admission. I love Tagalongs ®! I’ve told more than one Girl Scout, I am the easiest sell ever, when it comes to those, chocolate-covered, peanut butter-filled, little round circles of yummy goodness. I will definitely be hitting the many set-up locations coming up throughout the County to stock-up.

(Not that they last long, even though I tell myself every year I’m going to keep some back.)

I did learn something new this year though. The Girl Scouts have a program called Operation Salute, which encourages the donation of Girl Scout cookies to the military. One local group, Troop 201, has selected a River Valley High School graduate to be the recipient of Operation Salute donations for their troop. The graduate is Ethan Hersman, a former RVHS cross country runner, who is currently serving in the United States Air Force. If you would like to donate cookies for this cause, you can email the group at galliagstroop201@gmail.com.

Tentative dates for Gallia County cookie booth set-ups are:

(Please note: These are just tentative dates and there is no guarantee a troop will be selling in every time slot. You can also visit http://www.girlscouts.org/en/cookies/all-about-cookies.html to view set-up locations and times by zip code.)

According to the Girls Scouts website, when you purchase Girl Scout cookies the money stays local and is used to support local troops.

So, what’s your favorite Girl Scout cookie?
