Sweet Cow Ice Cream wants to buy cookies from YOU starting February 2, 2020

Sweet Cow Ice Cream, which has multiple locations in Denver and Boulder Counties, will support Colorado Girl Scouts during the 2020 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.

“Mint Girl Scout Cookie” is a Dutch Chocolate and Natural Peppermint ice cream with lots and lots of Thin Mints blended throughout. It will be available at Sweet Cow shops in Louisville, North Boulder, and South Boulder starting February 2 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 Samoas, 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 2 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 on February 2. 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 2, 2020. 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.

NEW FOR 2020! Sweet Cow Ice Cream is hosting a contest on Instagram! Two Girl Scouts each week (through March 8) can win a $5 gift card to Sweet Cow Ice Cream! In order to participate, you must take a picture of yourself (or have a caregiver take your photo) in a Sweet Cow shop or in front of the door. Post it (or have your caregiver post it) to Instagram and use the hashtags #ilovegscookiesinmyicecream and #GSColo.

Girl Scouts Bingo & Info Night (Regis/Berkley/Lakeside – Denver)

Girl Scouts is a place where your girl is free to try new things and just be herself! As a Girl Scout, your girl will practice leadership with grit like a go-getter, problem solve like an innovator, embrace challenges like a risk-taker, and show empathy like a leader—in an all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment where she can feel free to let her full, magnificent personality shine through every single time. And now there’s even more to explore, with new badges in robotics, outdoor adventuring, cybersecurity, and environmental stewardship—to name just a few!

 

Come learn more on Thursday, December 19th from 4:30 P.M. – 5:30 P.M. in the Basement Meeting Room at Smiley Branch Public Library located at 4501 W 46th Ave, Denver, CO 80212.

“Goodnight Moon” at Denver Center for the Performing Arts

“Goodnight Moon” at Denver Center for the Performing Arts is a lively musical based on the beloved story! As the clock strikes seven o’clock, all your favorite characters in the Great Green Room spring to life on stage: Bunny, kittens and mittens, bears and chairs, the red balloon, a (not-so-quiet) old lady, and – of course – cows jumping over the magical moon.

Featuring whimsical music and dance, this captivating adaptation of “Goodnight Moon” is produced as a part of the DCPA’s Theatre for Young Audiences program, which focuses on performances tailored for Pre-K through third grade audiences. The performance is one-hour.

Limited $16 tickets are available for the 1:30 p.m. performance on January 25, 2020. There is also a post-show workshop for Girl Scout Daisies and Brownies with teaching artists! All Girl Scouts receive a patch for attending.
