Girl Scout Community garage sale June 25

It’s time for some spring cleaning! Register now for a booth at our June 25th Girl Scout Community Garage Sale.

This community service event supports our Forever Green environmental initiative program and gives families and organizations a chance to join us in helping to Reduce-Reuse-Recycle and raise funds. It also creates awareness in an underserved community that Girl Scouts is affordable and is here for them. Older girls are welcome to help as it will give them a leadership experience in connecting with their local communities.

We will have creative kid activities, including piñata games that go along with our theme of recycling.

Booth space is generously 15’ x 15’ at an affordable price of $5. We welcome licensed food vendors.

Bring your own blanket, table and chairs. It’s on Saturday, June 25th, at Manual High School parking lot, 1700 E. 28th Ave., Denver, 80205, 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. An ARC truck will be available at 1 p.m. for any donations that didn’t sell.

Rain or shine, no refunds. Register here.

Hundreds of Girl Scouts cross Royal Gorge in traditional bridging

Hundreds of Girl Scouts of all ages from across the state walked across the Royal Gorge Bridge in Cañon City on Saturday in a special Girl Scout bridging ceremony as they move up from one program level to the next.

Bridging ceremonies are anticipated by Girl Scouts nationwide and are steeped in rich, long-standing tradition. In fact, just last Saturday, May 7th, thousands of Girl Scouts from across the country crossed the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in a similar type bridging ceremony: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/incontracosta/detail?entry_id=88603.

Girls learn to appreciate their unique beauty at spa day

032911125025

Girls learning how to take care of their bodies and how to appreciate the unique beauty of each other — that’s what Troop #1993 had in mind when they planned a day at the spa.  The troop visited Empire Beauty School where they learned how to take care of their hair, had their hair cut and/or styled, learned how to do pedicures and manicures.  What fun!  Pizza rounded out the whole experience. What a great bonding event for the troop!
