Eat ’em, Freeze’em, It’s cookie season!


Special to the
Opelika Observer

Get your cookies before it’s too late! Cookie season is coming to an end, but luckily those delicious cookies taste just as great if not even better frozen. Now is the time to fill those freezers full of Thin Mints, Caramel deLites and Peanut Butter Patties.
Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama (GSSA) will be selling Girl Scout Cookies until March 3. Each purchase of Girl Scout Cookies goes directly to support the 7,500 girls and volunteers the council serves. Proceeds from the Cookie Program help provide programs that encourage leadership, learning and life skills for girls of all ages in southern Alabama.
Girl scouts will be at retail locations every weekend until the program is over. To find cookies near you, a cookie locator app can be downloaded for iPhone and Android devices. You can also visit or call 800-239-6636 and a staff member can put you in touch with a local troop. Please help the GSSA continue to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
