Cookies and respect for our Hometown Heroes

Girl Scout Brownie Troop 65573 was treated to a visit by Deputy Andrew of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department! The local sheriffs are this troop’s Hometown Heroes, and the girls really enjoyed thanking them for all they do to keep everyone safe in the community, and also made sure they got their entire case of cookies that had been donated. A Daisy from our sister troop was also there to help, as she was training on how to run a successful cookie booth.

We learned that when the sheriff is at the cookie booth, lots and lots of people want to thank them for their service to our community, and buy lots of cookies! This got us even closer to our cookie sales goal.

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/

A police officer visited our cookie booth. She wanted to purchase a package of cookies. We had just had a customer donate 19 Hometown Hero packages!!! We tried to give her one, but she insisted on purchasing a package to support us. We were so thrilled. We discussed with her about running an event to visit the police station and doing any activities we want to earn an award. We are so excited for this opportunity and can’t wait to make it a reality. Our Hometown Heroes really are our heroes!
