Arvada

Our troop visited Arvada Fire Station No. 9 at the beginning of the 2018 school year. The firefighters made such a difference to the girls that they wanted to make them their Hometown Hero! During the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the girls worked hard to collect packages for their firefighter heroes. The firefighters came to our location to show their appreciation for collecting so many cookies for them! We gave them over 50 packages of HTH cookies. We are so proud of Troop 68170 from Arvada!

Brownie Troop 66532 chose first responders as their Hometown Heroes to receive Girl Scout Cookies this year. Each girl took one of the local fire and police stations. We delivered Station 5 their cookies and they spent two hours answering all of her questions and giving us a tour of the station and all the equipment. They were grateful and so are we for all that they do to keep our community safe!

Fort Collins

Thank you Fort Collins for supporting our Girl Acout troop and their Hometown Hero! Thanks to you 281 packages of cookies were delivered to the Fort Collins Mission to help give some goodies to our local homeless population. While we were dropping off the cookies, the girls saw a man and his son waiting in line for food. Homelessness can impact anyone and we were thankful for the opportunity to give to those less fortunate in our local community.

Girl Scout Cookies: A poem

Submitted by Claire and Stella

Evergreen

Eight Girl Scout Cookies can be found this season –
Discover them all, here are a few great reasons.
Thin Mints are certainly our most popular every year,
They are vegan, crisp,  and chocolatey to make you cheer!
Are you a gigantic peanut butter fan?
Then, the crunchy Do-Si-Dos is definitely your brand.
If rich caramel and coconut flavors fill you with delight,
The striped Samoas will satisfy you with each chewy bite.
Perhaps, you prefer something that is classic and simple instead?
Trefoils are the cookies that taste like traditional shortbread.
How about a peanut butter layer with rich chocolate too?
Then, the popular Tagalong is the one for you.
If sipping afternoon tea describes your style
Pair it with a lemony Savannah Smile.
Are you outdoorsy and a marshmallow-roasting lover?
Then, the new S’mores cookie is one you must discover!
If gluten is really not your thing,
These Toffee-tastics will make you sing.
Most of these cost $4 a box;
$20 gets you FIVE – and that really rocks!
If you don’t want cookies or are watching your weight-
Donate to our Hometown Heroes to participate.
Girl Scouts have been selling cookies for a hundred years plus-
Thank you for supporting our program and adventurous girls like us!

Media Star delivers Girl Scout Cookies to police officers

Submitted by Amanda K.

Windsor

After the Greeley Tribune interviewed Bella about the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Program, our phone started ringed off the hook! A number of friends called us, including Scott James, a local radio personality and the mayor of Johnstown. Scott wanted to buy $100 worth of Girl Scout Cookies to donate to the Windsor Police Department. He also wanted to buy $100 worth of cookies from a Johnstown Girl Scout to donate to the Johnstown Police Department.

Scott also put a call out on social media to all the local mayors in Northern Colorado challenging them to do the same.  Bella went on Tuesday morning and sold him 25 packages. On Wednesday afternoon, we met up with the Windsor Police Department to deliver the cookies on his behalf.

It was really fun. The officers were very grateful and Scott was very fun to be on air with!
