As a former Girl Scout, I can tell you there are a few important things to know: the Girl Scout Promise and Girl Scout Law by heart, all the songs you sing at camps down cold and the perfect speech for selling Girl Scout cookies in your town.
I still know the Girl Scout Law, I haven’t forgotten the lyrics (and accompanying dance steps) to “Make New Friends”, and I’ll always remember ringing the neighbor’s doorbells with my Brownie sash on, ready to recite why they needed at least 20 boxes of Thin Mints.
Girl Scout Cookie Season is now upon us, which means that you now have the chance to buy 20 boxes of Thin Mints, if you so desire (which I’m sure you do).
So, where can you buy Girl Scout cookies in this area?
According to the Online Cookie Locator, sales start Feb. 10 in Healdsburg at Big John's, Safeway, Exchange Bank and Garrett's Hardware among other area retailers.
To zero in on your neighborhood cookie booth, just type in your ZIP code at http://cookielocator.littlebrownie.com/
There's even a free app for your smartphone.
Also, if you need to be reacquainted with your old favorites and newcomers, here is a list of available Girl Scout cookies for purchase:

Happy scouting for cookies!
