That's a lot of cookies — $600 worth of Girl Scout cookies, that is.
That was the sort of kudo-laced rumbling that could be heard from the public and officials as a troop of third grade Fair Haven Brownies presented a check for $600 from cookie sales proceeds to the Foundation of Fair Haven at the Monday night Borough Council meeting.
The foundation, a 501C3 non-profit, takes in funds for the Fair Haven Centennial celebration slated for June and centennial-inspired events.
"The money the girls donated will help offset the cost of the centennial," Councilwoman Susan Sorenson said. "What a great job they did. Everyone loves those cookies and it was so nice of them to get involved in the centennial in that way."
It was no surprise that when the subject of Girl Scout cookies came up, anyone within earshot started recounting their favorite "flavor" and the memories attached.
Sorenson said her all-time favorite has always been Samoas. She told Patch she's a Samoa hoarder from way back. What about you? Share your favorite cookie and associated memory in the comments section below ... Come on, we know you have one!
