Montana McIntosh of Haysville, 14, left, Alexis Hawkins of Celestine, 13, and Savannah McIntosh of Haysville, 11, told troop leader Kathy Messmer of Celestine, right, and her daughter, Katrina, their idea to ask the manager to announce the cookie sales over the intercom at Rural King in Jasper on Thursday. “They’re awesome,” Kathy said about the girls. “They work hard, I’ll tell you. They really, really do.” Their troop, Troop 119, is service-oriented and raises money for Honor Flight of Southern Indiana among other philanthropic causes.


Montana wrote a thank-you note to hand out to Girl Scout Cookie customers at Rural King in Jasper on Thursday.
Savannah, right, and Alexis sold Girl Scout Cookies at Rural King in Jasper on Thursday. The troop will be selling cookies until March 11. "But of course the goal is to run out before then," said Katrina Messmer of Celestine, one of the troop volunteers.
