Girl Scouts dance the night away

(Continued)

MT. VERNON — —

We give them their safety tips on how to sell cookies, how to present cookies, how not to go door-to-door without an adult,” McConnaughay said. “It brings information to parents first and foremost.”

Ruthie Alexander, the Jefferson County Girl Scout Cookie Chairman, said the cookie sale helps teach the girls about goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

These are skills they will use throughout their lives, Alexander said.
