Almost time to buy Girl Scout cookies


Staff report



It is Girl Scout Cookie Time and the Girl Scouts of Champaign County soon will be out selling those boxes of yummy cookies. The pandemic has chased them from their usual sale sites, but drive-thru cookie booths will be located in parking lots in Urbana, St. Paris and North Lewisburg.

Pay with cash, credit card or check for cookie boxes. Most boxes sell for $5, and a couple sell for $6.

“Please support our Champaign County Girl Scout troops by buying your favorite cookies,” said Cheryl Paxton, the county’s cookie coordinator. Proceeds from local sales go toward Champaign County troop activities.
