Earn the “Responsible Cat Ownership” patch from the International Cat Association

Girl Scout Daisies and Brownies can earn a “Responsible Cat Owner” patch from the International Cat Association (TICA) at the Denver County Fair, July 14 and 15, 2018. Patches are earned after completion of TICA’s Cat Care 101 lesson, an interactive tutorial that covers how to choose a cat and the responsibilities that go with having a kitty in your life. Girl Scouts will practice how to groom and care for a cat on plush kittens. Lessons take about 15 minutes and girls who participate will get certificate and patches.

There is no charge to earn the patch, but participants must buy an entry ticket to the fair. General Admission tickets are $10/adults and $3 for kids 3-11. Tickets can be ordered at http://www.denvercountyfair.org . For more information about the patch lesson schedule, please contact Jackie Rose at cuddlebugpersians@msn.com.

The fair will be held at the National Western Event Complex at 4655 Humboldt Street in Denver. TICA is the world’s largest registry of pedigreed and household cats. TICA will host a variety of family-friendly feline activities at the fair including cat shows, feline agility demonstrations, painting classes and more.

Gold Award Girl Scout helps Brownies bridge to Juniors

2017 Gold Award Girl Scout Rose Goodman took a break from her busy life as a college freshman to help local Girl Scouts bridge from Girl Scout Brownies to Juniors.

Rose’s mom writes:

College can be overwhelming and present a tunnel vision of what reality is – it centers around one’s dorm, classes, and college athletic and social activities. What Girl Scouts continues to offer my daughter, is a connection to something greater and more vast than what the typical freshman in college experiences. By being invited by younger troops (and having activities work with both schedules), she experiences so much more and sees her value and contribution can make an impact on the lives and the direction of others.

Shy Girl Scout shines in Fall Product Program

Submitted by Anna Lahr

My oldest daughter is a Girl Scout Brownie. She is super shy (dx spectrum when really young), but she launched her Fall Product Program storefront with her own scripted audio for the emails, sent them out herself, designed a graphic for the store, and recorded the marketing video to upload. Because she didn’t want her face on camera, she created the cutest skit with a toy, complete with set! I’m amazed at her creativity and problem solving. She’s always been technologically adept, but Girl Scouts is helping her overcome her anxiety about talking to people AND learn marketing skills!
