It's Girl Scout cookie time.

COUNTYWIDE

Girl Scout cookie sales are starting this week

Just when you made that New Year's resolution to lose weight, Girl Scouts of West Central Florida are here to tempt you with Thin Mints and Samoas.

This week marks the start of the 2011 Girl Scout Cookie Program throughout its eight-county jurisdiction of Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Marion, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sumter counties.

Through late March, thousands of Girl Scouts will take cookie orders. Preorders will be taken though Jan. 28, with cookies delivered beginning Feb. 20.

Feb. 25 marks the start of booth sales. At that time you can visit gswcf.org and search for a booth by ZIP code using the cookie booth locator system. Booth sales end March 20.

Scouts also offer the Cookies from Home Program. Donations of cookies will be sent directly to U.S. military troops serving in combat zones overseas through a partnership with Support Our Troops. Donations to the Cookies from Home Program may be made in person through a scout or online at gswcf.org through March 20.
