Some of the girls from Troop 70720 gave a few hours of their time the day before Thanksgiving to volunteer at our local food bank. It is one of our regular service projects. It’s a great way to give back to our local community.
A few Girl Scouts from Service Unit 747 went out in the chilly Sunday weather to hike at Hewlett Gulch. Since it ended up being all older girls, they decided to do the entire trail. They hiked eight miles altogether! The next service unit hike is not until April, but be on look out for it! We hope to have more girls join in next time.
Participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program can pay off. Earlier this month, girls from Troop 70720 got to go to Great Wolf Lodge in Colorado Springs because of all their hard work in February and March of 2018. They had to wait awhile, but it was worth it. It was a blast with their indoor water park and various activities.

Service Unit 747 held their first group hike at Devil’s Backbone in Loveland. Four Girls Scouts, two leaders, one parent, and five dogs joined the fun! It was a great day with great weather for a hike!

Troop 70720 spent their first meeting back of the year doing our bi-annual nature area clean-up! This time we had to go into a fairly mucky area to get to the garbage, but the girls were troopers and found a ton! It always feels great to be giving back!
