Ear: Cookies

‘Meet Josie Reeves of Astoria (left) and Ella Bankston of Seaside (right) of Girl Scout Troop 12175,” Kimberley Chaput, Josie’s mother, wrote. “They’re best friends, and this year, they set a goal to sell 2,000 boxes each.” And they did.

“These girls set a goal, made a plan and followed through,” she explained. “They agreed that they would cheer each other on and help each other every step of the way. … They really focused on asking customers to donate cookies to the military and to Meals on Wheels. … Their work paid off — Troop 12175 will be giving away more than 300 boxes!”

“The rest of the troop has also done a fantastic job,” Kimberley noted. “Most of them are on track to sell 400 boxes each.”

“These girls, (Josie and Ella) … are pretty amazing and pretty awesome. … They really are best friends and best sellers!”
