Hometown Heroes Success

Troop 56342 delivered 156 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to Johnny B. Goods diner. The girls chose to give their Hometown Hero donations to Johnny’s because they have been such great community members throughout the pandemic. They give free soup to anyone who is in need, as well as deliver to assisted living facilities in our county. Johnny’s was recognized by Colorado Governor Jared Polis last May for their efforts during COVID. Troop 56342 thought their HTH cookies would be a great dessert with any free meals the diner continues to give to our community.

When we delivered the cookies, Kathy Diemer, owner of Johnny B. Goods, talked to our troop about business ownership and what it’s like being a female owner. Our girls earned their Business Owner badge during this visit.

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.
