Calling all Girl Scout Brownies! Cadette Troop 59 from Lone Tree – Highlands Ranch – Parker invites you to join them for the Brownie “Quest” Journey in a day event on Saturday, December 1, 2018 at Parker Library.

Brownies will discover their inner values and how this impacts their behavior, families, and community. All steps of the Journey, including a Take Action Project, will be covered during the event. Take Action projects will benefit the Denver homeless community and seniors at a local assisted living home.  Registration information is on the Girl Scouts of Colorado Events Calendar.

Troop 59 has received positive feedback for coordinating a recent Journey in a Day event:

“(Cadettes) very polite and inclusive of all the young girls.”

“The girls (Cadettes) did a great job leading, entertaining, and teaching the little girls. I’m very impressed! I like that each older girl had a specific job and executed it very well.”

“The troop ran an excellent event! I was impressed by the confidence and leadership of the Cadettes. Stations were very organized, and entertaining for the girls. Participation was great and the Cadettes did a great job of making all the girls feel included, and showing them that there was a way for all types of girls to be involved and have fun! Great job Troop 59! Thanks for having us!”

“The Cadettes did a FANTASTIC job! The event was well-organized and the communication received was excellent.”

“Location was great! Check-in easy. Organizers very affective.”

New! Our Cadettes are also following additional feedback and including the Brownie ‘Quest’ Journey patch set, within the registration price for chaperone pick-up at the Journey in a Day Event for volunteers’ convenience.

Troop 59 Cadettes are looking forward to seeing your Brownie Smiles in December!

My dad is amazing! He wants me to reach my goals and is proud of how hard I work. He helped our troop by driving to three different cookie cupboards to pick up Thin Mints and Samoas. He dropped them off at the booths to make sure we didn’t run out. After all this, he worked with me at my third booth of the day!

Centennial

We are the Cadettes of Troop 2732 and for our Silver Award, we educated fellow Girl Scouts about self-awareness and defense. We taught a seminar at Tiger Rock Martial Arts of Lone Tree under the guidance of Fifth Degree Black Belt Clint Asay. Leading up to the event, we spent many hours planning, researching, and training. Our hard work paid off with an amazing event on December 9, 2017. We also have a YouTube channel called “We Are Fierce GS” where people can go to watch our videos for many years to come. Check us out at: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCrHyKphCBUSE32BCAbx2rxQ. Also, check out our VLOG on our YouTube Channel where we tell you more about what we learned while completing our project.

Cadettes work to complete the “aMAZE” Journey

Submitted by Girl Scout Cadette Troop 59

Metro Denver

Lone Tree

Troop 59 learned a lot from the “aMAZE” Journey.  We learned a lot about friendship, anti-bullying, self-confidence, cliques, stereotypes, and overall social well-being.  Over the winter, we took the “aMAZE” Journey a step further.  Some of the girls in Troop 59 wrote on sidewalks or left notes around school, to encourage people to be kind and happy.  Other girls gave flowers to students to put a smile on their face or passed out blue bows to wear in support of local law enforcement. The project made a positive impact across our community.  We did this to educate ourselves on friendship, make a difference, and prepare for the future.

To conclude, we learned a lot and helped our community in a fun way.  It was an interesting experience.

Hi. My name is Tessa from Junior Troop 59 in Lone Tree and this is my Cookie Story.

Our troop cookie goals are tent camping and canoeing at Horsetooth Reservoir, as well as hotel camping this year.

Our Hometown Hero Cookies are being donated to Ronald McDonald House near Childrens Hospital. We will be cooking and serving breakfast when delivering our cookie donations.

I am becoming more comfortable about talking to customers. My math with counting money and counting back change to customers has improved.

I have enjoyed practicing speed cup stacking and performing this at our cookie booths this year in front of customers.

Thank you for reading my Cookie Story!

Hi. My name is Diana and I am from Brownie Troop 61226 in Lone Tree.

Our Troop goal is earning money for tent camping and hotel camping this year. I need to sell 170 boxes to help reach this goal.

Our Home Town Hero Cookies are being donated to Animal Shelter Volunteers.

I have learned that when you sing songs, have decorated signs and wear cookie costumes, you get more customers. Customers like energy!

My new skill is how to count back change to customers.

Thank you for reading my Cookie Story!
