Ponies and Pals GSCO Event Parker, CO

The Girl Scouts of Colorado Daisies had a great time at the Ponies and Pals Event June 22nd in Parker, CO.  They learned about caring for a horse, which included grooming, tack and a short riding lesson in arena.  The girls also got to make horse treats, which were fed to the horses at the end of the event. With the high interest from Girl Scouts for this event we will be offering this event for troops and individual Girl Scouts to do year round. Those interested can contact Colorado Riding Academy to register. The rate will still be $15 per Girl Scout and the girls will receive a patch and glow in dark “I love Horses” rubber/elastic band bracelet.

Girl Scouts of Colorado honors top cookie sellers

View more photos of the Top Cookie Seller Luncheon in Denver

Over the last month Girl Scouts of Colorado held several events throughout the state to honor the more than 400 Colorado Girl Scouts who sold 750 packages of Girl Scout Cookies during the 2013 sale. (View the program of this year’s top cookie sellers)

On Saturday, June 22nd, I had the honor of attending the ever-popular Top Seller Luncheon at the Denver Marriott Tech Center with roughly 95 of this year’s top sellers from around the state. Girl Scouts of Colorado’s President and CEO Stephanie Foote as well as retired Vice President of Product Sales Dorothy Gregory, the new Director of Product Sales Angel Haxton and Denver Product Sales staff, Jordan Alvillar and Dana Harrod, also joined me at the event. I always love seeing the girls of all ages dressed up in their fancy attire with smiles ear to ear! The luncheon includes a presentation of the top cookie seller medals, voting on next year’s cookie recognitions and dancing with the yearly conga line through the banquet hall.

Also on Saturday a rock climbing top seller event near Durango took place. Volunteer Dena Thomason snapped these photos at the event to share with us. Looks like fun was had by all!

Other cookie top seller events this month included the Glenwood Caverns and Pueblo Dinner Theatre on June 8 and coming up on June 29 is high tea at Victoria’s Tiny Tea Room in Eaton. Did you attend one of these events? Please share your photos and stories with us so we can showcase them here on the blog as well .

Congratulations to Girl Scouts of Colorado’s 2013 Cookie Top Sellers!

Lime Gulch Fire Update: The fire is about 15 miles from Tomahawk Ranch (which is still a very long way from camp) and moving in the opposite direction from camp. The local fire personnel have reassured GSCO that even though smoke is visible from camp, there is no present danger to our campers. The safety of our girls is always our top priority. GSCO has strong emergency action and evacuation plans in place. We are in frequent contact with all local authorities so that we are prepared to deal with any fire conditions.

Planting a forest

Steamboat Springs

Cadette Girl Scout Troop 11482 in Steamboat Springs and some Daisies and Brownies volunteered on Sunday, June 9, to plant trees as part of ReTree Steamboat. The trees were planted at Steamboat Ski Area where large sections of trees were devastated by the pine beetle epidemic. The efforts made by these volunteers will benefit generations in the future!

On Thursday, June 13th, The Red Feather Lakes Girl Scouts, Troop 4288 helped clean up their community, by picking up trash around Parvin Lake! The girls wore gloves, carried bags, and hiked around Parvin Lake, sharing stories, admiring the wild iris and golden pea wildflowers, as well as cleaning up garbage along the way! Afterwords, we enjoyed popsicles and a craft for Father’s Day! The girls really enjoyed doing something nice for the community and look forward to doing it again soon!

View more photos from the event

The beautiful grounds of the Penrose House Garden Pavilion are always a treat to visit annually when we hold our Highest Awards Celebration in Colorado Springs. On Tuesday evening, May 28th, we enjoyed a beautiful evening as we honored seven of this year’s Colorado Gold Award recipients as well as dozens of Silver and Bronze Award recipients. It was a great evening to hear how these recipients have gained leadership through earning one of Girl Scouts’ Highest Awards!

Learn more about our 2013 Highest Awards season on the blog we wrote after the Highlands Ranch event in April.

A video capturing the essence of the Colorado Springs event, especially personal remarks from each of the Gold Awardees honored, can be viewed below.

Our May 30, 2013, Cocktails & Cookie Creations event at Catamount Ranch & Club in Steamboat Springs was a huge success! More than 80 people attended this inaugural event and helped raise more than $8,500, which will be used to provide Girl Scout programming in the area and to send Routt County Girl Scouts to Keystone Science camp.

Girl Scouts of Colorado thanks all event sponsors and chefs, Catamount staff and the many Routt County volunteers who made this possible. The chefs/restaurants involved included:

  • Catamount Ranch & Club, Golf Course, Chef Ben Hunt prepared Chicken Satay with Spicy Do-si-Dos Sauce
  • Catamount Ranch & Club, Lake House, Chef Dan Hoffman prepared Lamb Chop Thin Mint Mole
  • Creekside Café, Chef Joe prepared Ancho Tenderloin Crostini (Trefoils)
  • Moving Mountains, Chef Heather Craigen prepared Lemon & Almond Crusted Shrimp with Cilantro Pesto (Savannah Smiles)
  • Vista Verde Ranch, Chef Chol McGlynn prepared Shrimp Mole with Pineapple Salsa (Tagalongs)
  • Steamboat Grand, Chef Midnight Wahya prepared Samoa Crab Cakes

Lead sponsors for the event included Craig-Scheckman Family Foundation and Steamboat Motors. Beverage sponsors were South Side Liquors and Breckenridge Brewery.

In addition to fabulous creations made with Girl Scout Cookies, the evening included games, a silent auction and live entertainment by Todd Musselman. We are already looking forward to the 2nd annual event in Spring 2014.
