Girl Scout Cookie Season is in full swing! You may have spotted Cookie Bosses around town eagerly tending to their booths, working with customers, learning to handle money, and gaining confidence. Recently, we asked girls from across eastern Massachusetts what they love most about the Girl Scout Cookie Program. From gaining essential skills to just plain having fun, here’s what they shared!
