It’s that time of year to stock up on Girl Scout cookies. As the largest girl-led business in the country, the iconic cookie sale helps girls develop key leadership skills including goal setting,

Girl Scouts and adult volunteers will be selling cookies at the following Haywood locations:

• Saturday, Feb. 16,  and Sunday, Feb. 17, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 6 p.m. at Lowe’s and Kmart;

• Saturday, Feb. 23 and Sunday, Feb. 24, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 6 p.m. at Lowe’s and Kmart;

• Saturday, March 2, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Mast General Store, Waynesville;

• Saturday, March 9, and Sunday, March 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 6 p.m. at Lowe’s and Kmart.

This year, the cookie boxes are getting a facelift for the first time since 1999 and the newly introduced Mango Crème cookie will be for sale, as well.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program has been a major part of the tradition of leadership in the Girl Scouts mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character across the country. The girls take active roles in all parts of the program, and proceeds from cookie sales benefit girls right here in the community. Girl Scouts will pick up their cookies to begin deliveries to customers and prepare for cookie booths through March 11.
