The GSCO History Committee has set up a display at the Loveland Public Library (300 N. Adams Ave, Loveland, CO 80537) featuring the 2018 cookie program. The display will be up for the entire month of January.

It is a colorful display of cookie packages, prizes, and information on the program. The committee highlighted this year’s program and The 5 Skills to help educate the public about all that goes into the Girl Scout Cookie Program. It is so much more than girls selling cookies and getting prizes. It is about girls learning goal setting, money management, people skills, decision making, and business ethics. Be sure to check out the bottom shelf for some history of the Girl Scout Cookie Program and see some vintage cookie cases.

If you’d like more information on the history of the cookie program or would like to see some of past year’s prizes and themes, please contact the GSCO History Committee at gscohistory@gmail.com.
Since this display will only be up during the month of January, it will be available for use in another community during the cookie program. Let the History Committee know if you have a place in your area for this display.

We have several programs available for troops to do while visiting the GSCO History Center in Loveland and several take out programs. The History Committee works on Tuesdays and is open by appointment on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month.

The GSCO History Committee has a display at the Loveland Public Library during the month of February.  The display highlights 100 years of Highest Awards in Girl Scouts.  The Girl Scout Gold Award began in 1980, but Girl Scouts have been earning a highest award since 1916.  This award has been called the Golden Eagle of Merit, Golden Eaglet, First Class, and Curved Bar.  Posters showing information about these awards, along with Girl Scout handbooks and badge books through the years,  are joined by some vintage uniforms and badge sashes showing earned badges. In addition to highlighting Highest Awards, there is a section advertising cookie sales.

The GSCO history committee hopes that if you are in the Loveland area during the month of February, you will stop by the library and see the display.  The Loveland Library is located at 300 N. Adams Ave, Loveland, CO 80537 and is open daily from 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.

For more information on the GSCO History Center in Loveland email gscohistory@gmail.com.  We welcome troop visits as well as community visitors.  The committee works on Tuesdays from 9 a.m.-noon.
