The American Legion, Girl Scouts, military, first responders, and the public held a flag retirement ceremony on Saturday, September 8, 2018. There were buglers for taps, an honor guard gun salute, and each person in attendance was given a star off a flag and grommet. Girl Scouts could also take home a shell casing from the gun salutes.
As part of the Girl Scouts “Colorado Commitment to Caring” Troop 70413 collected more than 250 books for “Book Drive.” The girls have chosen several different organizations to donate to such as, “Reach Out and Read,” Mountain States Children’s Home, and “Friends of the Library.”
For their Silver Award Project, Troop 77911 is working with various community agencies to bring the ATTI traveling Vietnam Wall to Dacono, Colorado.
Please join Troop 77911 to be a part of several community events in the Carbon Valley area September 10 – 18, 2016. The public is welcome to attend.

Our troop is very lucky to have our Cookie Dad, Chris, at every booth. He makes sure all of the girls are safe and is our official photographer.
While we were selling at the Sportsman’s Warehouse in Loveland, there was a shoplifter. The guys at Sportman’s Warehouse were able to apprehend this criminal, right in front of our booth! Luckily, Cookie Dad was right there standing between the action and our booth. Our entire troop feels safer knowing Chris is there to protect us.
We also want to thank our honorary Cookie Dads at Sportsman’s Warehouse. We had quite a few booths at this location because these guys were so wonderful. They would come out periodically to check on us, give us advice on marketing and sales and they came out after this event to gives us an update and make sure all if the girls were safe.
For my troop’s Bronze Project we had a Safety Fair. In our Safety Fair we had first aid kits, emergency preparedness, C.P.R, and snacks. It was amazing, we even had Mountain View Fire Rescue help put this on. After that 110 girls know what is in a first aid kit, and they know that they can be prepared in an emergency situation.
Girl Scout Troop #70413 was awarded 2nd Best Float for their entry, “We’re not just cookies” in the Miner’s Day Parade in Frederick, CO. In addition to showing their cookie booth, the float featured a scene from camp and the Teddy Bear Project.
Thank you so much to our amazing cookie Dads. Jason Morehead built our award winning Blinged out booth. He was at every booth sale delivering the booth and setting up. He also gave up his garage to store this amazing booth. Chris Tone was also at every booth sale to help with booth setup. He even took a turn in the booth challenging the girls to sell more cookies than he could. From initial cookie pick up to the very end they have been there to help with everything. Thanks Jason and Chris!
