  • On Monday, Feb. 4, the Cranston Heights Fire hall was taken over by an overwhelming amount of Girl Scout cookies.
    Trefoils, thins mints, and savannah smiles stacked high to the ceiling, waiting to be sorted and delivered to their prospective home.
    Luckily, Girl Scout Service Unit 45, which includes Hockessin, Pike Creek, as well as some of Wilmington and Newark, got by with a little help from some local students.
    Delaware Military Academy students had off from school on Monday to commit an act of service, and student Caitlyn Naugton, a junior and Girl Scout, coordinated the service project for the school.
    "This is my thirteenth year as a girl scout," Naughton said, who started out as a Daisy. She is a member of Troop 11, which is located in Pike Creek and Hockessin.
    The students loaded the cars with cookies which will then be dispensed to local Girl Scouts. They will deliver the cookies to everyone who ordered the delicious treats.
    This year also marks the 10th anniversary of Operation Taste of Home which allows individuals in the community to purchase cookies that are directly donated to local charities and service members overseas.
