The Ramona Gardens Girl Scout Troop Sold Enough Cookies This Year to Go to Disneyland


Twelve (mostly) smiling faces with mouse ears peer out from the LAPD blog today. That’s because Girl Scout Troop #431, based in Ramona Gardens in Boyle Heights, sold enough Thin Mints and Tagalongs to cover a field trip to the place next door to the Happiest Place on Earth, Disney California Adventure Park. According to the police department, which helps mentor the troop—that’s officer Mishell Harvey-Dixon front and center, above—the occasion marked a first visit for some of the girls. So, really: stop feeling bad about already finishing the boxes of cookies you ordered.
