Auburn Avenue Girl Scouts

Auburn Avenue Girl Scouts

From the Atlanta Daily World, February 26,  1950:

GIRL SCOUT COOKIES–The members of Girl Scout Troop 140 prepare to sell cookies on Auburn Avenue. Miss Jesse Andrews, leader, totals the day’s receipts at the Girl Scout office.  Three hundred Girl Scouts are selling cookies for the purpose of increasing their camp development fund. Cookie Sale dates are February 21 to March 10. Girl Scouts have secured permission to sell cookies at community centers, schools, grocery stores, and other public centers of activity. They ask the public to buy cookies.
