Greeley Fire and Rescue at our cookie booth

Tearyn (Girl Scout Junior) was at a King Soopers site. It was cold, but she pushed on. A group of firefighters came in to do some shopping for their fire station. She didn’t know they actually lived in the station for several days at a time, because they’re ALWAYS on call. Day or night they’re ready to help anyone in need. It could be a serious fire or a minor injury, it doesn’t matter, they’re ready in an instant.

About Tearyn: I am a go-getter because I reached out and asked for a picture. I am an innovator because I designed my booth, made a reversible tablecloth, and I am always thinking of new ways to make more sales. I am a risk-taker because I’m willing to try new things to see if they will work. Challenges motovate me! I AM A LEADER! I encourage other booths that set up after mine. In my troop, I love helping others with projects and in school I help classmates. I even won the principals award (again) at school for being “open minded” this time.

These Girl Scouts also earned the Uniform to Uniform patch! Learn how to earn yours: http://gscoblog.org/2020/01/uniform-to-uniform-patch-for-the-2020-girl-scout-cookie-program/

My husband is the best Girl Scout dad. He has taken our daughter to every meeting since she started three years ago because I work at night. He participates in booths, events, and is always there to encourage strength and confidence in Leah. She is kind, giving, and always including others. I’m super proud of them.

Dads are an important part of the Girl Scouts of Colorado Cookie Team. That’s why we honor dads who help Girl Scouts all across Colorado meet their goals. Tell us about what makes your dad an awesome Cookie Dad and he could win a cool prize.

Gold Award Girl Scout: Three years later

My name is Emily Walker and I am currently a senior completing my final semester at the University of Northern Colorado as an Audiology major. I grew up in the town of Castle Rock, where I was involved in Girl Scouts from elementary school to high school.  

It has been three years since I earned my Girl Scout Gold Award for my project “Community Comfort.” The focus of this project was to bring comfort to individuals and families involved in emergency situations. Teddy bears and blankets were originally provided to the Castle Rock Police and Castle Rock Fire and Rescue departments to be handed out to those in need of their services. Now, these items of comfort are being distributed by the emergency services of Castle Rock, the Help and Hope task force of Douglas and Elbert County, and the Denver Rescue Mission. The students involved in the BIONIC team of Castle Rock Middle School continue to host an annual fundraiser to purchase teddy bears and blanket materials for Community Comfort. 

The Gold Award has continued to impact my life in the past three years. I have been able to apply the life skills I have learned from completing my project to my studies at my university, especially time management, financial management, and public speaking. As I am preparing for graduate school, I know these skills, and many others I have gained through the Gold Award experience, will continue to benefit me in the future. My compassion for helping and serving my community continues to grow and I hope to inspire others to do the same for their own communities. 

Cookies for soldiers

I just wanted to say thank you to Girl Scouts of Colorado and Hearts Across Miles for sending my husband (and father of two Colorado Girl Scouts) and his unit in Afghanistan Girl Scout Cookies. His unit recently deployed with the Wyoming National Guard. They were stationed at FE Warren AFB in Cheyenne.  His unit received four huge cases, stuffed full of Girl Scout Cookies and they really appreciated all of them.
