MARQUETTE - Local residents have a last chance to purchase Girl Scout cookies this month. Area Girl Scouts will be selling cookies today through March 24 at Cookie Booths outside of local businesses. Cookie Booth season marks the final few weeks of the Girl Scout Cookie Program - an annual financial literacy and fundraising program that helps girls earn profits they can use to fund Girl Scout activities. The remainder of the cookie profits goes to the local Girl Scout Council to cover the cost of leadership programs and services for girls.
