Colorado Springs Girl Scout earns patch from Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame

Submitted by Erin B.

Colorado Springs

To celebrate Women’s History Month, my mom took me to CSU in Ft. Collins and I met my cousin Raechel. We all walked to the library on campus and checked out the exhibit on display about Colorado women who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. It was really interesting. My favorite was learning about Susan Helms. How amazing to be a part of so many firsts for women! She attended the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, where I’m from.

The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is excited to partner with Girl Scouts of Colorado to provide girls across the state an opportunity to learn the stories of women who have shaped our state and the nation’s history with courage, leadership, intelligence, and creativity. Girl Scouts are future female leaders of Colorado and the Hall of Fame recognizes and preserves the accomplishments of past and present Colorado women. – M.L. Hanson, Founder of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame

Annual Statewide Bridging ceremony at Royal Gorge Bridge

A bridging ceremony is an important transition in a Girl Scout’s life. It’s a defining moment when a girl celebrates her achievements and prepares for new adventures and responsibilities. Once a girl bridges to a higher level of Girl Scouting, her leadership skills and the experiences she will have continue to grow. Girl Scouts is not simply an after-school activity, it’s the Girl Scout Leadership Experience that builds as girls progress through the program that gives girls the skills they need to empower themselves to take their place as future leaders.

Join Girl Scouts from across Colorado at our special statewide bridging ceremony on the Royal Gorge Bridge – the highest suspension bridge in the United States! We are organizing an official crossing of the bridge at 11 a.m. and will host a reception after. When you check in at the Girl Scout table inside the park, you’ll receive a wristband that will allow you into the reception area. Reception includes cupcakes, lemonade, and activities led by GSCO staff.

GSCO Photo Challenge: Swimming is my favorite

Submitted by Jordan Cook

Pikes Peak

Colorado Springs

Our troop had a swim party with our service unit. I love to swim. It is my favorite thing to do. Swimming is great exercise. When it is winter in Colorado, we have to swim at indoor pools because it is too cold outside. In the summer, we go to outdoor pools.

Girl Scouts of Colorado hosts a pool party at Pirates Cove each year. We try to go every time. The games we play in the lazy river are my favorite. It is the best when we are able to meet friends or bring a group because we have more girls to play with.

Girl Scouts of Colorado is hosting a photo challenge! Just submit your favorite Girl Scout photo and the story behind it using the Share Your Stories form (www.gscoblog.org/share). Winners will be featured in future GSCO marketing materials, on GSCO’s social media networks, and on the GSCO Blog.

Girl Scout Troop 76134 at the Avalanche game

Girl Scouts of Colorado and the Colorado Avalanche partnered to host the annual Girl Scout Day with the Avalanche on Saturday, February 16, 2019. The troop with the top ticket referrals won a Girl Scout Cookies booth at the game and Troop 76134 won for the second year in a row!

The troop also had a special pre-game experience, watching the players warm up. Some girls sat in the penalty box and some on the bench!

After watching most of the game, the girls set up to sell Girl Scout Cookies at both exits! They sold 548 packages of cookies – beating their sale at the game last year.

The whole troop thanks the Colorado Avalanche for this special opportunity!

Look out for information about Girl Scout Day with the Avalanche again next year.
