We are proud of the efforts of four Cookie Top Sellers in Northeastern Colorado — Katie, Taylor, Jamine and Selena! Here are photos of the girls as they received their 2012 Top Seller medals. Each of these Girl Scouts sold 750+ packages of cookies.
2012 Top Sellers – Denver Dinner, a set on Flickr.
The annual Girl Scouts of Colorado Top Seller Cookie Dinner was held in Denver on Saturday, June 9th. Girls honored at the event had sold 750 or more packages of cookies during the 2012 Cookie Program. A fun evening of dressing up and dancing the night away was had by all!

Skylar Davidson and Isabella Mendoza representing Blue Mountain Elementary School Girl Scout Troop 3631 delivered Hometown Heroes cookies to the OUR Center in Longmont. They had 116 pounds of cookie and everyone at the center went out of their way to let them know how grateful they were for the donation and how happy the recipients would be. The girls choose the OUR Center because they do so much for families in Longmont. Hospitality Manager, Rick Reiten, explained to the girls how donations go from entering the building to out the door to individual families. He also offered to give the entire troop a more in depth tour that included a snack. The troop may go back for a tour, but the girls thought the snack should go to those who really need it.

Julia T., 10, Troop 2510 in Wheat Ridge, wrote a cookie jingle for her troop’s first booth sale this Sunday:
You can buy a box or 2 or 3 or 4
but it would be even better if you go for more!
They’re sweet, they’re yummy, they’re tasty, they’re round
and it does no harm to just have ’em around!
You can freeze ’em, you can give ’em, you can eat ’em right there.
They make great gifts, they show that you care.
And if you’re wonderin’ what we’re describing in this small little rhyme,
what we’ll tell you is everybody get ready, it’s Girl Scout Cookie time!
This year marks Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary Year of the Girl, and as part of that celebration Grand Junction is hosting the 2nd annual Cocktails & Cookie Creations April 20th at The Chateau at Two Rivers Winery.
Eight of the valley’s most talented chefs will create one-of-a-kind savory appetizers using a famous Girl Scout Cookie as an ingredient. These creations will be formally paired with Colorado wine by Sommelier Monty Haltiner of Crossroads Wine & Spirits. The proceeds from this signature event provide programming for Girl Scouts throughout Western Colorado. It is the largest fundraiser for Girl Scouts on the Western Slope.
US Bank has generously agreed to serve as title sponsor for this event, but lesser sponsorship opportunities are now available. Please contact Cindi Graves, Girl Scouts of Colorado’s Community Relations Manager on the Western Slope, at 970-628-8003 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how you can support Girl Scouts in our community.
It’s no secret that it is Girl Scout Cookie time in Colorado. And Colorado’s many wonderful media outlets have been helping us get the word out. Here is a sample of some of our recent placements, as well as pictures taken at these media interviews. More media placements are coming in every day, and we will continue to add to this list so check back with us. Go Girl Scout Cookie time!
Troop 20, 5th graders at Lukas, ran the cookie rally for 120 Girl Scouts – K-4th grade – on Sunday, Jan. 15. The girls had help from high school Troop 33. The Juniors earned their Bronze Award by planning and running the cookie rally! It was all them! Nice job, girls!
