Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay in the Indian River School District gathered at the Millsboro Fire Hall Jan. 10 to gear up for this year's cookie drive.

Girl Scout Troop 410 hosted 15 troops, about 150 girls, to create posters and learn about the six varieties of cookies they are selling. Cookie booth sales begin Feb. 14 at local businesses, and the door-to-door orders began Jan. 11. Scouts are also taking donations for Operation Taste of Home cookies that will be donated to armed forces and local agencies such as food banks and pantries.

Rep. Ruth Briggs King, R-Georgetown, was on hand to assist scouts in the aMUSE Journey program, where they share ideas to break out of traditional roles for girls and learn how many possibilities are open to them.
