Girl Scout Troup 20328 visited Mayor Mayor Sam Teresi recently to have cookies and milk with him. The Girl Scouts have a long-standing tradition in selling cookies. The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls five essential skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. The skills help prepare girls to become academic and future professional leaders, innovators and self-starters. To find Girl Scout cookies, visit gswny.org and click on the cookie locator and find cookies in your area. Girl Scout cookies will be available until Dec. 8.
