Sweet Cow Ice Cream wants to buy cookies from YOU

Sweet Cow Ice Cream, which has multiple locations in Denver and Boulder Counties, will support Colorado Girl Scouts during the 2019 Girl Scout Cookie Program! As in years past, Sweet Cow will purchase Girl Scout Cookies from local girls/troops to make two special flavors to be offered during February/March 2019.

“Mint Girl Scout Cookie” is a Dutch Chocolate and Natural Peppermint ice cream with lots and lots of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies blended throughout. It will be available at Sweet Cow shops in Louisville, North Boulder, and South Boulder starting February 3 until it runs out, at which point “Samoa Samoa” will take its place!

“Samoa Samoa” is a light caramel ice cream with toasted coconut, lots of Samoa Girl Scout Cookies, and a homemade hot fudge and caramel swirl. It will be available at Sweet Cow in the Highlands, Platt Park, and Stanley Marketplace shops starting February 3 until it runs out, at which point “Mint Girl Scout Cookie” will take its place!

Last but certainly not least, Sweet Cow will have their “Vegan Mint Girl Scout Cookie” available around February 13. Just like the Mint Girl Scout Cookie, but without the dairy.  A delicious option for anyone dairy free!

You can find out which flavor Sweet Cow is scooping up at your local shop by checking their website, or by using their free Sweet Cow App!

Sweet Cow will purchase the cookies needed to make these special flavors from Colorado Girl Scouts starting February 3, 2019. The number of packages purchased from each Girl Scout/troop will depend on the needs of each shop and the popularity of these special edition ice creams. To sell cookies to Sweet Cow, simply visit one of the shops where these special flavors will be sold and give your best Girl Scout Cookies sales pitch.

Girl Scout Troop 3010 learned all about Rosie the Riveter and walked in Boulder’s holiday parade as Rosies, all carrying signs saying things like “future engineer,” “future teacher,” “future world hunger activist,” and “future leader.” They were so proud and a big hit in the parade!

Girl Scout Troop 179 earns Bronze Award

Submitted by Nancy Renken

Boulder

The 5th grade Girl Scout Juniors of Troop 179 earned their Bronze Award on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at Heatherwood Elementary School in Gunbarrel. The Bronze Award is the highest award that Girl Scout Juniors can earn. Girl Scout Cadettes can earn the Silver Award, and Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors can earn the Gold Award, which is the highest honor in Girl Scouting.

Part of the requirements for the Bronze Award is recognizing a need in the community, making a plan, and finally, putting it into action. In this case, the girls talked about how the playground designs at Heatherwood Elementary were really faded and hadn’t been updated in years. As outgoing 5th graders, they wanted to give back to their school. A small delegation of Girl Scouts: Sophia J., Katy R., and Meaghan Z. met with Principal Jaramillo to discuss whether or not such a project would be feasible. The principal was really open to their proposal and agreed that the girls could take on the project. Sharon Lynch was our parent in charge who helped the Girl Scouts with determining supplies needed and kept the project within their scope. While the girls could not take on everything that needed repainting, they were able to repaint the tetherball courts, two four-squares, and a hopscotch. They were dedicated, focused, and they did a great job. All of them were really engaged in the project.

Additionally, when a Girl Scout was not on paint duty, she worked on a secondary project of decorating food delivery bags for There With Care.

Our project was successful due to the enthusiasm and dedication of Girl Scout Troop 179, the direction of Sharon Lynch, the support from the parents of Troop 179, and additional support from Prana Construction, and Papa John’s Pizza, 28th St., Boulder.
