Girl Scouts offer thanks

To the Editor:

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 all the troop cookie managers for organizing, collecting and keeping track of the cookies.

Thank you to Hy-Vee, Walmart, Shopko 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: Grace Lutheran Church for the use of its facility for cookie delivery day and cookie rally; the Gibson family for its help with cookie pickup; Gemini Studios for promoting on the local access TV; First Farmers & Merchants Bank 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, Photo Press, Martin County Star and Truman Tribune for all their publicity during the cookie program.

Finally, a big thank you to all of our customers. The girls sold 20,866 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 see you next year.
