Chatham District Girl Guides will be selling classic chocolate and vanilla sandwich cookies on Saturday, March 31 between 10 a.m and 3 p.m. in Oak Bay.
Girls from Sparks to Pathfinders will sell the popular cookies on the Avenue from Wilmot Place to Monterey Avenue.
“Oak Bay is always very supportive of the cookie sale,” says acting district commissioner Heather Brass.
Boxes of the classic sandwich cookies will sell for $5 each. (Mint cookies are sold in the fall.)
Proceeds from the sale go toward Guide activities, programs and environmental projects such as the annual Broom Bash the girls participate in each year at Uplands Park.
But cookie sales also teach the members math and money-handling, and marketing skills, Brass added.
Guides will also go door-to-door to sell cookies beginning April 1.
