Thank you for support

To the Editor:

The Martin County/Fairmont Girl Scouts would like to thank all the parents, individuals, businesses and organizations that supported the girls in their recent cookie sale. A big thank you goes out to Judy Botzet, as Service Unit cookie manager, and to all the troop cookie managers for organizing, collecting and keeping track of the cookies.

Thank you to Hy-Vee, Wal-Mart, Shopko, Shoe Sensation and Fareway Foods for allowing our troops to hold booth sales on their premises. Thank you also to those churches, businesses and organizations that worked with individual troops on their booth sales.

Thank you for the continuing support of the community: Five Lakes Center for use of its facility on cookie pickup day, Grace Lutheran Church for use of its facility for our cookie rally, Gemini Studios for promoting on the local access TV, First Farmers and Merchants for use of its electronic billboard, CER for assisting with the use of the city of Fairmont community events calendar, KSUM/KFMC Radio Station for promoting on the local radio station and the local newspapers: the Sentinel, the Photo Press, Martin County Star and Truman Tribune for all their publicity during the cookie program.

Finally, big thank you to all of our customers. The girls sold 25,764 boxes of cookies this year. Selling cookies plays a vital role in supporting our local troops, camps and facilities, along with scholarships from council to the girls. We appreciate your continuing support and hope to see you next year.
