Nearly two-thousand GSEMA community members celebrated the return of Girl Scout cookie season at our 2nd Annual CookieFest on November 24 at the Bentley University Arena in Waltham. The day was filled with exciting booths, games, ice-skating, giveaways, cookie tasting, and other activities to help prepare Girl Scouts and families kick off the cookie season on December 3.

From MBTA stations to malls to grocery stores–even professional hockey games–Girl Scouts set out on cookie booth adventures. Girl Scouts learned how to talk to new people in their community and manage a business, all while earning towards toward their goal. And eastern Massachusetts was spared a harsh winter, making outdoor opportunities a bit more manageable!
