Silver Award Girl Scouts special guests at Rockies game

Girl Scout Cadettes from Troop 60789 in Aurora were recently special guests at a Colorado Rockies baseball game. On August 7, 2018, the girls were recognized by UCHealth as part of the organization’s  “Moments to Shine” program.  They were on the field before the game, taking pictures with Dinger and catcher Tony Wolters.  The announcer told the crowd about their project and the girls were shown on the jumbo screen.

“FANS, PLEASE DIRECT YOUR ATTENTION TO THE FIELD.  THE COLORADO ROCKIES WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME A GROUP OF SPECIAL GUESTS WHO ARE HERE AS PART OF U-C-HEALTH’S “MOMENTS TO SHINE” PROGRAM.

TODAY, WE ARE EXITED TO WELCOME AURORA GIRL SCOUT TROOP 6-0-7-8-9. EARLIER THIS YEAR, THIS GROUP OF YOUNG WOMEN WERE ABLE TO ADVOCATE FOR CHILDREN BY WORKING WITH THE AURORA CITY COUNCIL TO PASS AN ORDINANCE BANNING ADULTS FROM SMOKING IN VEHICLES WHEN PASSENGERS YOUNGER THAN 18 ARE PRESENT. THE BAN IS THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN COLORADO, AND WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE HARD WORK OF MAKENNA, AMELIA, MICAELA, JULIANNA AND SOFIA TO LEND A VOICE TO THE VOICELESS. U-C-HEALTH SALUTES TROOP 6-0-7-8-9 FOR THEIR DETERMINATION, COMPASSION AND INSPIRING JOURNEY TO MAKE A CHANGE.

FANS, LET’S GIVE IT UP FOR THIS GROUP OF YOUNG WOMEN AND WELCOME THEM TO COORS FIELD FOR TODAY’S GAME!”

After the National Anthem, the girls went to their seats to enjoy the game. Unfortunately, the Rockies lost, but the girls were fortunate enough to be recognized for their efforts in passing the law.

Earlier this year, Troop 60789 made headlines around the world for their Silver Award project to pass an ordinance in the city of Aurora that made smoking (whether tobacco, marijuana, or vaping) in a vehicle while a minor is present subject to community service or a fine.
