Our troop picked Alpine Rescue as our Hometown Hero. These ladies and gentlemen are all volunteers who put their lives on the line every day for residents and tourists alike to enjoy our beautiful state! They deserve so much more than cookies and we wanted to let them know how thankful we all are to them. Let’s give a big applause to each and every one of them! Thank you for your service!
We have a small group of four Juniors from Black Hawk. We work hard in play and also at the age of being involved in our community. These G.I.R.L.s have the desire to teach the younger ones what Girl Scouts involves, but also to make a difference in others’ lives! Now that cookie season is over, we will be focused on collecting stuffed animals for the senior center, so we can let everyone know that they still matter! Very proud of our girls and the goals they have set!

Girl Scout Junior troops are invited to spend the day at Lincoln Hills, an outdoor education center in Black Hawk, for a day of outdoor skills and adventure on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017. Activities include fly fishing, archery, and survival skills. Lincoln Hills staff will lead these activities at their beautiful location in the mountains in a four-hour session from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Cost is $9/girl and free for leaders. The program is limited to Girl Scout Juniors only. To allow enough space for girls, we are requesting that only two troop leaders attend for adult supervision, but can make that exception for one more adult per troop if you need extra adults to carpool. Troops will need to bring a sack lunch.
