Juliette Gordon Low experienced her first flight eight years after the Wright brothers successfully flew the Wright Flyer I in 1903. The thrilling experience lead Juliette to introduce a Girl Scouts Aviation badge to the Girl Scouts Handbook.

Keeping with that tradition, on April 14, 2018, the Colorado 99s (an organization of all female pilots) is hosting Aviation Patch Day. This program is for Girl Scout Cadettes and Seniors  interested in aviation-related activities. These include making and racing various paper airplanes, learning the language of aviation, understanding more about weather, hearing the history of aviation, and even sitting in the cockpit of an airplane.

Troop 3453 experiences a “Day in the life of an artist”

Submitted by Tom Bielefeldt

Highlands Ranch

Six Girl Scouts from Highlands Ranch Troop 3453 participated in a wonderful “Day in the life of an artist” experience at Ouray Sportswear in Englewood on Saturday, April 8, 2017. The event, sponsored by the Ouray of Hope Foundation, provided an opportunity for troop members to collaborate with designers, production artists, and other members of Ouray’s creative team.

The Girl Scouts, along with participants from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado, were guided through the creative process of contemplating shirt designs based on the “Bigfoot” or “Yeti” theme. Girls researched and designed a couple of small “thumbnail” sketches before refining concepts into their very own full-size design. Creative professionals offered meaningful insights and guidance along the way. “Ouray is honored to provide opportunities to young folks looking to learn more about ‘real life’ employment scenarios. We enjoyed being able to showcase our process and interact with the kids, it was a very enriching experience,” said event organizer, Bobby Small, Ouray’s VP of Information Systems.

Troop 3453 was also treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the Ouray production facility, including massive screen-printing, embroidery, and laser cutting machines. Each participant then presented her design concept to the entire group, receiving suggestions and constructive feedback from an Ouray creative director. At the conclusion of the event, each Girl Scout received a special, custom-designed Bigfoot t-shirt commemorating the fantastic outing.

The experience is part of Troop 3453’s Media Journey, with the girl’s planning to use their newly acquired insights to design and produce their very own troop logo shirts!

Clothing bank clean up

Submitted by Tanner Palmer

Englewood

Denver Metro

My name is Tanner Palmer and I represent a charter school that serves over 2,000 children K-12 called HOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op. Most of our students are considered come from low income families and are “at-risk”. Most of our students participate in free and reduced lunch programs.

We operate several “Learning Centers” for our students where they go to school Monday through Friday from about 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Our students enroll with us because they’ve been bullied at other schools or have some other learning challenge which is better addressed in smaller learning groups.

Out of one of these Learning Centers, we operate a clothing bank from collected donations around several K-12 schools in the area. Our clothing bank is located on Colfax and Elmira at 1564 Elmira Street in Aurora, CO.

We have a small warehouse full of donated clothing that we desperately need help sorting out, in preparation for a free open house so our students in need and community members can shop for free clothing.

We are hosting a few clothes sorting events on July 29, August 3 and August 24. The actual date for the Elmira Clothing Bank open house is August 26/27 so we need the clothes sorting done well ahead of that date.

We would love to invite the Girl Scouts to participate in this wonderful community service event that will directly benefit the needy in our community.

Annually HOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op, which is a charter school in Colorado that serves at-risk youth, organizes a back-to-school clothing bank to assist their families who may be homeless or struggling financially. The clothing bank is in a warehouse in Aurora near Children’s Hospital Colorado. We are looking for Girl Scout groups who would like to volunteer the weekend of Aug. 21-23 to help us organize the clothing we’ve collected to give away Aug. 28-29 to our families. We so appreciate the Girl Scout troops who have helped HOPE with projects over the last year, including the organizing of the clothing bank last August (photos included)!! If you are interested, please contact Melanie Stone at HOPE. She can be reached at melanie.stone@hopeonline.org or 303-727-0315.
