Journey in a Day event for Daisies

Submitted by Ariella Wells

Northern & Northeastern CO

Fort Collins

Troop 70720 ran a “Three Cheers for Animals” Journey in a Day event for Daisies at the McKee 4H Ranch Building in Loveland. 27 Girl Scouts Daisies from around the state joined them. The girls had a guest speaker from Animal Friends Alliance, made lots of projects, and did activities! For the ending project, they did a Take Action project of making winter feral cat boxes for a local animal rescue! They will distribute the boxes out to areas that have homeless/feral cats which can use them.

Daisy Club visited Johnny B. Goods Diner in Steamboat Springs. It was not only a special treat to end our session of the After School Action Daisy Troop, it was a fun way to explore money, coins, bills, budgets, and what we can buy with our cash.

Girls learned about coins, how they add up, and we talked about ways to spend them. AND we talked about things to do that DON’T cost money. We “budgeted” for our milkshake outing and the girls got to pick out a milkshake to share with their buddy!

These go-getters and risk-taker Daisy girls tried a milkshake that was new to them, a flavor they had never tried!

Daisy Troop 77918 turns plastic bags into restored benches at the Callahan House

By the City of Longmont

A group of 13 girls from the Longmont Daisy Troop 77918 teamed up with local retailer, Budget Home Supply, to host a plastic bag drive, turning plastic bags into recycled composite decking materials to restore two benches for The City of Longmont’s Callahan House. The drive served as an opportunity for the girls to reach out to the community and learn about involvement, service, and charity.

Sponsored by Budget Home Supply, the girls’ plastic bag collections were sent to AZEK Building Products, where they were transformed into composite decking material, which is made up of 90 – 95% plastic film. The material was brought to the Callahan House where the Daisy troop worked with a local contractor Big Sky Builders, who also donated time to the project, on the restoration of the benches. They worked together to replace the worn boards on the existing benches with the new composite material, restoring the benches to a like-new condition.  

On November 2, 2019 the girls and their troop leaders held a ribbon cutting ceremony and tea party at the Callahan House to celebrate their hard work and the success of the project.

The City would like to thank the girls for all of their hard work and dedication on this project. The benches look great and will be appreciated by many visiting the Callahan House for years to come!

Built in 1892, Longmont’s Historic Callahan House and Garden is a historically designated home given to the City of Longmont in 1938 by honest and skillful merchants, Alice and Thomas Callahan. Host to several special events open to the community yearly, the House is also available to rent for private events.

Stop by The Callahan Holiday Open House on Friday, December 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. for a tour of the historic house and visit with Santa! This event is open to the public and admission is free. Parents, bring your own cameras to capture the moments!
