I love my family. They always help me sell cookies…. Especially my dad. My dad is so fun! He helps me to be a great Girl Scout and loves to wear costumes at my booths to help me to make my goal.

This is our TCM and cookie dad watching one of our troop girls sell cookies at a booth. He helps at every booth possible. He also helps with outings after cookie season is over and the girls get to go to fun events like ice skating, hikes, and teaching self defense classes. This great dad went to all the cookie booths for his daughter this year so mom could recover from an surgery.

Our best is the best!

Rypster the rock star Cookie Dad

Submitted by Laura Walters

Aurora

Southwestern Colorado

Ryp Walters is the best cookie dad ever.  He attends EVERY booth whether his daughter is working or not to support and encourage the girls (as well as set up and break down the booth).  The booth is amazing and awesome and was built by Paul Neiman, another dad in our troop, and his girls.  It WON the Bling Your Booth contest because of it’s awesomeness and creativity.  

Ryp not only supports Troop 4233 as the Cookie Leader but he also supports his other daughter and her Cadette troop in lots of ways.  

For this month of the year, Ryp’s garage and van are filled with not only love and family…but cookies and more cookies.  His commitment to excellence, to reaching goals and to having fun are what makes him the rock star that he is.

We wanted to write about how awesome our daddy is! He is always there for us. Our dad picks us up from our meetings, joins us when you have events, he goes to almost all of our cookie booths with us, and he buys lots of cookies from us too! Our dad doesn’t just help with our Girl Scouts. He also goes to all our softball practices and games, plays with us (nerf guns, video games, bike riding, etc.) He takes us camping and fishing in the summer and sledding in the winter. We love your daddy so much!!! (Our dad, Mike, is on the left! Uncle Jeremy, on the right, is a good dad to our cousin too! ) ~Nicole, Michaela & Aaliyah Garcia

Fort Morgan dads help with cookie booth

20160221_121232

Troop 83334, combined Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors from Fort Morgan,  had the dads helping with cookie booths Sunday afternoon. We’re very fortunate and usually have at least one dad at each booth but even we don’t often get all the adult booth helpers be dads that often.

The front row of girls are Tamberly (Cadette) Marissa (Senior) and Jamie (Senior) the back row is Mark, Akela (Ambassador) Mario and Mark.  Yes, our dads were Mark, Mark and Mario. Having them there made for interesting conversations!

My Daddy is the Best Cookie Dad in the Galaxy!

Submitted by Amber Chase

My Dad, John Chase, is the best Cookie Dad in The Galaxy! He does many things to help my troop get ready for Cookie Season. He makes time to help my friends and I reach our goals. He works very hard to help me reach my personal goals as well!

Girl Scout Cookies for 22 girls take up a lot of space! Every year my Dad takes the time to clean our garage so we have a place to put the cookies. Since my mom cannot park her van in the garage he makes sure that her van is cleared of snow so she can still drive it. My Dad also helps pick up Girl Scout Cookies from the Cookie Cupboard. He organizes them in the garage so that it is easy to find the flavor that girls need when they come to pick up their orders.

My Dad loves Star Wars! When he was younger he collected movie displays and posters from the movies. When he found out that the theme of our Cookie Booth this year was Star Wars he gave my troop his cool displays to use at our booth! We have cardboard cutouts from all of the Star Wars movies that have been released! I think that it was pretty special of my Dad to give us his displays.

My Dad helps me each year to meet my Cookie-selling goals. Each year he helps me set up my Digital Cookie Store. He helps me set my goals, and then he helps me try to meet them. He takes vacation during Cookie Season every year so that while my Mom works as a florist during Valentine’s Day I can still sell Girl Scout Cookies. He also takes Girl Scout Cookies with him everywhere he goes! He sells Cookies at work, at my brother’s Boy Scout Meetings, and at his Chorus rehersals!

My Dad does a lot to help with Girl Scout Cookie Sales. I love my Dad a lot! He is an amazing Cookie Dad!
