Submitted by Kay Shaw, Girl Scouts of Colorado Gold Award Mentor
Guests at the annual Tablescapes conducted by the Assistance League of Denver got the opportunity to see a table that honored the highest award in Girl Scouts, the Gold Award. Tablescapes was held Thursday, June 9–Saturday, June 11, 2016 at the Bosworth House in Denver. This event is a fundraiser for the Assistance League.
Every year, members of the league compete to design tables and share them with the public. This year, Michelle Krawchik, a member of the League, and Girl Scout, with the help of Kay Shaw, a member of the Denver Gold Award Committee, designed a table to highlight the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts’ highest award. The table decorated in gold and white with a bouquet of yellow flowers, had many badges girls might have achieved, as well as a sash, Girl Scout Cookies, an autograph book, a calendar, and uniform from the 1960’s, the time in which Kay received her award. At the time Kay received her award, it was known as the Curved Bar.
In addition to the 15 tables that had various themes, guests were allowed an opportunity to shop at various boutique stores. After viewing the tables, participants were treated to a lovely tea. A Denver Girl Scout troop helped the League by cleaning tables and offering tea. This event is an interesting celebration that allows the community an opportunity to participate in fun activities as well as donate to the Assistance League which provides funds to help school children and senior citizens.
A great time was had by all!
