When a local partner donated a venue for a night, girls in Steamboat Springs Troops 54313, 53725, and 54595 decided to plan a holiday party for Girl Scouts and their families!

Sunday, December 15, 2019 was a night to remember as nearly 100 Girl Scouts and their family members gathered to celebrate the holidays with caroling and hot cocoa. The gathering included crafts to make. Think MAKE NEW FRIENDS ornaments, scrabble letter holiday decorations, cutout cookies to decorate too! Then, to top it off, there were holiday movies showing in the theater AND Santa arrived to greet the guests and give out event fun patches to the Girl Scouts!

From start to finish, the event was Girl LED and Girl PLANNED. Seniors and Ambassadors, along with Cadette PAs, led the craft stations and hosted the caroling.

What a festive way to anticipate the holiday season!

Go-Getter Seniors and Ambassadors planned the event.

Innovators found craft ideas suitable to all age participants.

Risk-takers planned an event that had never been done before to start some new traditions in our community.

Leaders made sure each station was ready to go for crafts and fun!
