Girl Scouts from Troop 35144 invited our local fire department to come see us at our cookie booth and purchase some cookies. We then let them know they are our Hometown Heroes and their station will be receiving donated cookies at the end of the season. They brought two firetrucks for us to see, answered our many questions, showed us their uniform, and demonstrated how quickly they have to put it on in an emergency. Thank you to our local heroes at Pueblo Main Rural Fire Department for all your assistance!
Zosia L., Wilhelmina M., and Kiera K. from Troop 35367 got a chance to meet their Hometown Heroes, the Englewood Police Department, and sell cookies at a Charles Hay World School organized event, Cougar-Palooza, on Thursday, February 13, 2020. Lots of questions were asked from both the Girl Scouts and police officers!
Troop 27145 of Mancos participated in their first cookie booth of the season and had a repeat customer. Sgt. Brad Ray stopped by and purchased a few packages of cookies with the promise that he’ll be back. Not even an hour later, he returned as promised for cookies for his family and donated some packages once he learned that the troop decided that the teachers of Mancos RE6 were their Hometown Heroes!
Troop 27145 embodies the G.I.R.L. spirit! We have one Junior who loves to help organize and lead the troop in activities and our Brownies really dive in to anything they decide to do. They are fast on their feet and can problem solve as a team to accomplish their goal and have really bonded as a troop this year.
Hi! I’m Gracy. I had a booth sale at my brother’s high school during parent teacher conferences. It was super snowy, so when business was slow, we invited the resource officer over to talk about our cookies. It was cool. His daughter was a Girl Scout for years, and he told us funny stories about all the cookies they sold together. He asked about our new cookie, Lemon-Ups. We talked about them, but I couldn’t sell him those because we did so well that we had already sold them all!
Troop 57220 in Walden has a new deputy in town! Deputy Scott of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department visited our multi-level troop during our meeting to introduce himself to the girls. He also bought a package of cookies from all 19 girls! Thank you Deputy Scott!
First day of the cookie selling season, and Melina Jo had a new helper at her myBooth, Emily (her puppet). Feeling a little shy, Emily helped crack the ice by telling jokes. All of a sudden two big patrol cars pull up right beside the table! Melina became nervous, but two friendly, smiling female officers approached Melina and Emily. They heard someone was selling highly addictive product to the public. Melina Jo lightened up once they asked her what she wants to be when she grows up. And, they shared their stories from when they were Girl Scouts!
Melina improved her booth this year, by helping make signs, and telling the customers jokes while Aunt Lucy imputed the customers’ credit card information. She helped figure out the math noticeably quicker. She was more forward interacting with the customers, sharing her favorite cookies, and describing them!
Girl Scout Kenadie and mom Andrea received a message from a police officer friend who was having a hard day and wanted Girl Scout Cookies to help make the day better. We were able to make arrangements to meet and so that our friend Joe and his partner could enjoy some cookies while they finished their shift. As you can see, Joe could hardly wait to eat them!
We invited our local police department to stop by our booth to celebrate the first day of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, and boy did they! Two fire engines and two ambulances pulled into our booth. Our girls were given fire hats and lots of support from our first responders.
