My dad, Chris, works at night driving a semi-truck. When he comes home, he takes me door-to-door to sell cookies. One time my mom wasn’t feeling well, so my dad took me and helped me sell lots of cookies. We even sold a whole case of Thin Mints. I love my Dad.

My dad is always helping me out. For cookie season, my dad is helping me sell cookies left and right. After school, we might go set up a booth or we might go door to door. He is really good at helping me selling cookies and he is not afraid of the competition– I have to remind him sometimes it’s for our troop. Although its my first year in Girl Scouts, I think I’m doing pretty good (mostly because my dad). I love being in Girl Scouts. Today after school he took me to go sell cookies and I sold about 60 packages of cookies. He has so many friends who like Girl Scout Cookies, which is really helpful. When it comes to helping me sell cookies, my dad is the best at it. This is my awesome dad and I’m so glad I have him.

Troop 43810 spent a recent meeting learning about the “Climate Change” patch. Each Girl Scout used her own foot as an example to learn what is harmful to the earth and what can make her carbon footprint smaller, along with other activities! Some of the go-getters asked to make a couple changes in our troop to make our troop’s footprint smaller over time!

In early 2017, Troop 45182 decided to give back to their community. As a troop they adopted Wagner Park in Colorado Springs. In adopting this park, they go monthly or semi-monthly to clean up trash. The girls split up in two’s with one adult to each pair and then each pair gets a section of the park to clean.

Our troop believes that giving back to our community is just one small part of living the Girl Scout Law.
