Cookies: A Great Success in Southern Illinois

In Illinois, The Randolph County Herald Tribune reports that the 2010 Girl Scout Cookie Sale was a huge success as 10,427 girls sold 1,094,052 boxes of the tasty treats. And, Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois had five “Super Sellers” who each sold at least 1,000 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies!

For the fourth year in a row, Rita Nasello from Alton earned the top spot on the Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois cookie seller list. Rita sold 1,142 boxes of cookies during the 2010 Cookie Sale. Hannah Groeteke from Granite City, Abigale Merriman from Mt. Vernon, Catrina Spangler from McLeansboro and Hanna Jude from West Frankfort each sold at least 1,000 boxes as well. For their efforts, each girl will receive an iPod Touch - (I'm jealous)...

Girl Scout Cookie Sale proceeds help Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois recruit and train adult volunteers, provide financial assistance so Girl Scouting is available to all girls, improve and maintain camp properties and Develop and deliver extensive program activities for girls.

Congrats Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois! Do you have any top sellers you would like to give kudos to?
