The Sweetest Partnership:
Santa Barbara Maritime Museum To Partner With Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast in Offering Cookies On The Patio!
Santa Barbara, CA. February 2, 2022 –Dreaming about Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties? The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum (SBMM) is delighted to announce that the Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast will be on the museum’s patio selling their cookies on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am – 6pm from February 12 through March 13 (excluding February 26-27). Just in time for Valentine’s Day, and there are more flavors to choose from than ever before. What will you buy? There are old favorites, like Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties (Tagalongs), and Shortbread (Trefoils), as well as new flavors like this year’s newest, Adventurefuls.
According to Michele Lofte, Director of Product Programs for the Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast, cookie sales is one of Girl Scouting’s oldest and most iconic traditions. Tammie Helmuth, CEO for this area, added, “The Girl Scout Cookie program fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about. The museum can be a part of that for them. Having a Girl Scout cookie booth here is a great fit.” Every cookie purchase supports the girls’ ability to learn, grow, and thrive through all of life’s adventures. Plus, all proceeds from sales at SBMM will stay local to help fund life-changing, girl-led programs, experiences, and learning.
