For this year’s Girl Scout cookie sale, first-grade Girl Scout Daisies of Troop 10849 at Lakeview Academy, set a goal to send 250 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to U.S. troops serving overseas. The girls collected donations to pay for these cookies from family, friends, and from customers at outside "Booth Sales." As a "thank you" for the 150 boxes the troop sent last year, Bill Northcutt, who is stationed in Afghanistan, visited the troop at school to receive hugs from all the girls.
