Cookie monsters rejoice! The Drumheller Girl Guides have begun selling their spring cookies.

District Commissioner Paula Peake says cookies are available from any registered Drumheller Girl Guide.

"Every girl who is a Brownie, Spark, Guide, Pathfinder, Ranger is selling cookies. They have them in their possession right now and can sell."

Guiding numbers more than tripled this year, thanks to a surge in new registrations. Despite the increased numbers, Peake understands that sometimes it can be hard to track down a cookie seller.

"If you don't know a girl, what we usually do is I meet people all the time in town," she explained. "I literally have a cookie-mobile with my vehicle at the moment."

Cookie money is used to pay for activities for the girls. In addition, each girl gets a credit for each box sold which helps reduce the cost of big events like camping trips both in and out of Drumheller.

"With Easter Break, we haven't had any meetings so I haven't had a recent update," admits Peake. "I do know that a lot of our girls have sold their allotment, but we still have extra cookies to sell."

Peake has secured a table at next week's Spring Expo and will have Girl Guides on-site to sell their cookies. If you miss the expo, you can contact Peake at 403 820-0766.
