Sweet time of the year

STELLARTON — Spring has finally sprung and along with the flowers that are starting to pop up, another sure sign of spring — Girl Guide cookies — is also blossoming.

The vanilla and chocolate sandwich cookies are back again this year and the Brownies of Stellarton have been getting ready to sell all their sweet treats.

“We have two campaigns a year,” said Tanya Oldford-Cowley of the Stellarton Brownies. Chocolate and vanilla sandwich cookies are sold in the spring while the peppermint cookies are sold later in the year.

April 7 is the official Cookie Day for Brownies all over; it is also the day local Brownies will be stationed at Proudfoots Home Hardware in Stellarton for those looking to purchase some cookies and support the local troop. Anyone who is interested in buying cookies but cannot make it to the store that day can also talk to someone involved in the troop or call the cookie hotline at 1-800-565-8111.

“Cookies at this time of year help the girls get to camp,” said Oldford-Cowley.
