NORWALK, Conn. -- The Girl Scouts of Connecticut will be stationed at polling places in Norwalk and other sites in Fairfield County on Tuesday to sell cookies. 

The Girl Scouts hold the extra sales during election season as a fundraiser.

"It’s a great way for cookie lovers to stock up for the holidays while they cast their votes," said a release. "The Cookie Program is a hands-on leadership and financial literacy program through which girls learn five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics."

The cookie program is a part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, "which helps girls discover new things about themselves and others, connect with new friends and learn about other cultures and places, and to take action by making their community or the world a better place," according to the release.

Broad River:

These announcements are Never timely ! I'm already back from voting at Ponus. The lady said come back later,.. yeah I'm going to make a second trip, look for parking etc., just because The Scouts didn't make known they were selling.
I brought boxes of food for the Food Bank. They made it know they were accepting food items at the polling places.
How long has The Scouts been an organization that sells cookies? How long have people been voting at the local schools?
Quite the learning curve here Scout mothers / dads !!
