The winter season is about to become the Cookie Season, as the Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska prepares kick off their 2018 Cookie Program next month. You won't be able to buy the cookies outside of your local grocery store or online; that won't happen until February 23. Anybody can order cookies anytime they want clear up through March 17. Whether it's a trip she'll never forget, a service project that will change her community forever, or the opportunity to build a lifetime of memories at camp, Girl Scout Cookies help make it all happen!
