From peanut butter patties to iconic Thin Mints, Mount Carmel Missionary Baptist Church was a treasure trove of Girl Scout Cookies on Saturday.

The fellowship hall of the church, on Heitman Drive, was swimming with 6,000 boxes of cookies as Girl Scouts and their parents hastened to pick up their orders Saturday.

While some of the cookies are accounted for, having been purchased in advance, others will be sold at Hanes Mall and outside other stores around town, said Doris Jones, a coordinator for the cookie sales.

The cookie sales will help pay for a number of trips for the 40 Girl Scouts throughout the year, including their year-end trip to Cincinnati.
