Girl Scouts of Otahki Council's 11-county area recently attended pinata parties in honor of the newest Girl Scout cookie, Pinatas. Activities included games, relay races, celebrations in song and cuisine from Mexico and a pinata contest.
Selling cookies annually gives Girl Scouts an opportunity to earn money to purchase and maintain equipment and facilities and enable program activities, special events and projects.
About two-thirds of the price of each box of cookies goes directly to Girl Scouting. All proceeds support the local council; a portion of the money is distributed directly to the troop level, where girls decide how it is spent.
Girl Scout cookie orders will be taken through Jan. 26. Cookies will be delivered in early March.
