Aurora/Centennial area Junior Troop 60047 held their annual mother-daughter weekend, which included bringing 13 cases of Hometown Hero Girl Scout Cookie donations to the rangers of the Rocky Mountain National Park. As part of their Outdoor Journey, the girls wanted to thank the rangers for their commitment to protecting our beautiful Rocky Mountains. Rangers Maci McPherson and Christie Wilkins explained how they became rangers. Ranger Christie even told a story about meeting with her high school counselor, who told her that girls could not become rangers. That story truly reinforced that girls can be anything they put their minds too since she had overcome the stereotype and now gets to do a job she loves. The Girl Scouts also had the opportunity to complete a service project by picking-up trash at the East Inlet Trail before taking a hike to see Adams Falls. The entire weekend was filled with memories to last a lifetime.
