Girl Scouts of San Diego – Imperial Council congratulates Carmel Valley Girl Scout Troop 1520 as a top seller of Operation Thin Mint cookies. The troop was honored at a VIP reception aboard the USS Midway on May 7 at the 10-year anniversary celebration of Operation Thin Mint. The girls voted to use their troop profits to purchase additional boxes of OTM cookies and sold over 1,000 OTM boxes.

Girl Scouts of San Diego-Imperial Council have sent over 2.5 million boxes of cookies and notes of appreciation to military serving overseas. Returning military were at the event to describe how receiving the cookies and notes brings so much meaning to them, “A taste of home and note to show we care.”

Troop members include (in photo above) Caroline Sanborn, Alexandra Wahr, Julia Little, Erica Jansen, Kyra Knox, Gaby Harrison and Emily Wang (not pictured). In addition, Caroline Sanborn (in photo above right) was recognized for her sixth year in a row as a Top Seller of Girl Scout Cookies. This year she sold 2,463 boxes of cookies for a grand total of 14,985 boxes and was rewarded with a helicopter ride that took off from the deck of the USS Midway.

The troop would like to thank the community for its support and enthusiasm for this program. The cookie program is a major fundraiser for local troops and the local council, as well as a multi-faceted program to learn business, marketing and service skills for the girls.
