Lack of Bomb Volunteers and Girl Scout Cookie Sales
From the March 20, 2017, Roanoke (Va,) Times "Looking Back."
1942, 75 Years Ago.
** "Completion of the civilian defense set up is being somewhat retarded here because of lack of volunteers for service in bomb squads, one of the most dangerous branches of the auxiliary police program."
** "Roanoke Girl Scouts went over their goal in the annual cookie sale last night, the latest report showing a grand total of 14,410 pounds sold compared to the goal of 14,000 boxes."
I Wonder If Cookie Sales Continued During the Rest of the War. --GreGen
