JACKSON, Tenn.-Tuesday, it was good to be Mayor of Jackson. That was because he was treated to milk and cookies by local Girl Scouts.

In honor of National Girl Scout Cookie Day, which is actually this Friday. Mayor Jerry Gist was visited by a Girl Scout Troop, who brought him an afternoon snack.

National Girl Scout Cookie Day was meant to be a way to promote cookie sales, which is the primary fundraiser for the Girl Scouts.

"It helps support our organization, helps us support our camps and supply programming and opportunities to the girls, cause we're all about the girls. It's a girl-lead organization so everything funnels back to the girl, one way or another," said Debra Martin of Girl Scouts Heart of the South.

For National Girl Scout Cookie Day, the scouts will be at the Girl Scout Regional Center between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday.
The center is located at 1007 Old Humboldt Road in Jackson.
