Lyons Girl Scouts recently kicked-off cookie season with a Built By Girls party at Lyons Community Center.
Lyons has nearly 40 Girl Scouts in grades K-10 who will be accepting orders for traditional cookies, such as Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Savannah Smiles, Do-si-dos and Trefoils, and specialty cookies, such as gluten-free Toffee-tastics and Girl Scout S’mores.
The traditional cookies cost $4 per box, and the specialty cookies cost $5 per box.
Proceeds from each box are split between the Girl Scout Council and the girl’s troop. The council uses cookie money to give the girls programs and maintain their camps; troops use the money for community service projects, badge work and trips.
