The Juniper Trail Service Unit invites service units and troops statewide to join our socially distanced walk: Step Out With Suffragettes 1.5 mile walk on Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 10 a.m.

We invite troops and/or families (based on current guidelines at the time) to join us by walking in your local area to honor the suffragettes that came before us in the fight for the right to vote.

This event is planned for you! Please e-mail girlscouts602@gmail.com for more information and instructions.

Instructions include:

  1. Links to age appropriate videos (Daisy/Brownie/Junior/Cadette/ Senior/Ambassador) for girls to watch to learn more about the suffrage movement nationwide.
  2. Questions for an online scavenger hunt for girls to learn about Colorado’s important milestone in the suffrage movement.
  3. Instructions so girls can learn about the process to register to vote in the State of Colorado.
  4. Ideas on building a kit you can deliver to families so girls can make sashes and signs to wear at the walk.

This is an amazing opportunity to educate the voters of tomorrow by celebrating the voters of the past!

Lets all coordinate our walk on September 19 at 10 and enjoy the socially distanced sisterhood of Girl Scouts!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
