Girl Scout cookie prices remain the same for 2016

December 21, 2015

CHESTERTOWN — Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay will not be increasing the price of Girl Scout cookies this year. While some councils have decided to increase cookie prices to $5 per box, cookies on the Delmarva Peninsula will remain at $4 per box for the upcoming cookie season. The price of a box of Girl Scout Cookies is determined individually by each of the 112 local councils. Not all varieties of cookies are available in every market due to the cookies being produced by two commercial bakers, ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers. Local Girl Scouts will start taking orders in January. There will be eight cookie varieties — Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-si-dos, Savannah Smiles, Rah-Rah Raisins and gluten-free Toffee-tastic. The cookies will be $4 per box with the exception of Toffee-tastics at $5 per box.

COMMENTARY: Girl Scouts a great way to get jump start in life

Sept. 2015

"We walk in the doors at 7 p.m. Next, we greet our fellow Girl Scouts and leaders. We walk to the middle of the room and make a circle. I then stand tall with the three middle fingers on my right hand raised and recite; 'I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout." -Read more-



On Delmarva, Girl Scouting can change young lives

Sept. 2015

Thousands of girls join Girl Scouts each year, the majority in kindergarten through fifth grade. I joined at age 5 as a Daisy in one of my local troops, where I stayed for two years. As a Brownie in second grade, I moved to Troop 980, run by Angie Robinson, where I have continued my Girl Scout career.


When I bridged to Junior level in fourth grade, I almost immediately began my Bronze Award, which was called “Operation Kinderbooks.” It promoted literacy for entering pre-K and kindergarten students by distributing books and school supplies.

Girl Scout groundbreaking


Girl Scouts break ground on new $6.5 million facility

January 7, 2015, Nicole Sullivan, Newark Post – With shovels in their hands and helmets on their heads, officials from the Girl Scouts of Chesapeake Bay (GSCB) braved the frigid temperatures Wednesday to make their first mark on what will be their new home for years to come.


After their 25-year residency on the University of Delaware’s South Campus, the Girl Scouts were tasked with finding a new location before their lease expires in December 2015. Lynn Williams, Girl Scouts of Chesapeake Bay project manager, visited 84 locations before deciding on the seven-acre lot on Old Baltimore Pike, near Route 273, east of Newark.


The organization purchased the land from the estate of the Dianich family. Catherine Dianich Gruver, executor of the estate, felt it was important to sell the property to true stewards of the land, like the Girl Scouts, rather than turn the space into a housing development. “We couldn’t think of a better use for it,” her son, Zach Gruver, said. -Read more-
