COVID quarantine hit right at the end of Girl Scout Cookie season and we never were able to take  cookies to our Hometown Heroes, emergency room doctors and nurses at two local hospitals. This weekend, Troop 71171 of Firestone finally dropped off half of their Hometown Hero Cookies, 52 assorted packages, to doctors and nurses at Longmont United Hospital in Longmont.

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.

Troop 71171 earns Bronze Award

We are Troop 71171 in Frederick/Firestone. Our Juniors have been working on their Bronze Award this year. In February, March, and April of 2017, our girls had events at our local senior center, including game and puzzle night, Easter egg coloring, and craft night. For their final event, they had a huge spaghetti dinner and bingo night.  We fed 37 seniors, 13 Girl Scouts, and eight adult volunteers. ?

Our girls cooked and served  dinner (spaghetti, meatballs, salad, and bread), dessert (brownies and ice cream), and drinks (water, coffee, lemonade) all night long.  They led a rousing game of bingo as well. They were complimented left and right on their behavior and manners. They sent each senior home with a gift bag full of goodies donated by our community through a drive that the Girl Scouts led through their elementary schools. We are very proud of the work they have done this year.

This is the first time for these Girl Scout Daisies to sell cookies and gather donations and they were able to donate 26 boxes of cookies to the firefighters!
