Sweet Cow Ice Cream wants to buy cookies from YOU starting February 2, 2020

Sweet Cow Ice Cream, which has multiple locations in Denver and Boulder Counties, will support Colorado Girl Scouts during the 2020 Girl Scout Cookie Program! As in years past, Sweet Cow will purchase Girl Scout Cookies from local girls/troops to make two special flavors to be offered during February/March.

“Mint Girl Scout Cookie” is a Dutch Chocolate and Natural Peppermint ice cream with lots and lots of Thin Mints blended throughout. It will be available at Sweet Cow shops in Louisville, North Boulder, and South Boulder starting February 2 until it runs out, at which point “Samoa Samoa” will take its place!

“Samoa Samoa” is a light caramel ice cream with toasted coconut, lots of Samoas, and a homemade hot fudge and caramel swirl. It will be available at Sweet Cow in the Highlands, Platt Park, and Stanley Marketplace shops starting February 2 until it runs out, at which point “Mint Girl Scout Cookie” will take its place!

Last but certainly not least, Sweet Cow will have their “Vegan Mint Girl Scout Cookie” available on February 2. Just like the Mint Girl Scout Cookie, but without the dairy. A delicious option for anyone dairy free!

You can find out which flavor Sweet Cow is scooping up at your local shop by checking their website, or by using their free Sweet Cow App!

Sweet Cow will purchase the cookies needed to make these special flavors from Colorado Girl Scouts starting February 2, 2020. The number of packages purchased from each Girl Scout/troop will depend on the needs of each shop and the popularity of these special edition ice creams. To sell cookies to Sweet Cow, simply visit one of the shops where these special flavors will be sold and give your best Girl Scout Cookies sales pitch.

NEW FOR 2020! Sweet Cow Ice Cream is hosting a contest on Instagram! Two Girl Scouts each week (through March 8) can win a $5 gift card to Sweet Cow Ice Cream! In order to participate, you must take a picture of yourself (or have a caregiver take your photo) in a Sweet Cow shop or in front of the door. Post it (or have your caregiver post it) to Instagram and use the hashtags #ilovegscookiesinmyicecream and #GSColo.

Troop 66517 Bronze Award project

Submitted by Brittney T.

Arvada

On December 23, 2019, we completed our Bronze Award project. We wanted to do something that would benefit our community and our peers. We’ve all had hard days at school, so we chose to paint sayings on the bathroom walls to remind our fellow students that everything is going to be ok! Things like, “Throw Kindness like Confetti” and “Believe you can and you will.”

First, we worked together to come up with our sayings, we wanted them to be inspirational, but easy to remember too. Next, we worked together to build our presentation for the principal. Once we were confident we had a good presentation, we made an appointment to present to the principal.

Once we had an agreement with the school, we rounded up our troop leaders and we went to school over Christmas Break! Our leaders stenciled our sayings on the wall for us, then set us loose with the paint! It was a little scary, because we really only had one chance to get it right with the paint. We worked together and cheered each other on and everything turned out great!

We hope our work will help to inspire students for years to come! Thank you, Campbell Elementary, for letting us come paint on your walls! A special thank you to the janitors for staying with us on their day off, as well!

Day camp volunteer search for Broomfield

Broomfield

With winter break just around the corner, it may seem wild to be thinking about Summer 2020 already, but that’s just what we’re doing! We’re looking for volunteers to help our day camps be successful. Volunteers don’t have to be troop leaders – any Girl Scout parent is eligible.

Troop 63572 is hosting two day camps in the Broomfield area over the summer. Magical Mysteries will take place at Interlocken Park June 15 – 19 and Magical Mysteries will take place at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church July 27-31. Adults who volunteer for a week can get their girl’s entire registration fee reimbursed – free camp!

Volunteering at day camp is a lot of fun and is a great way to give back to Girl Scouts. As an adult volunteer at our camps, you step in only when needed – the older girls run the show and plan the activities. Being a volunteer at day camp is a great way to share the Girl Scout progression and be a part of the leadership experience.

Jay Service Unit tea party

Submitted by Karla Coronado

Aurora

Our service unit older girls organized a tea party at the Garden Plaza Senior Living. The girls had an opportunity to meet and get to know some amazing residents. At the end of the event, some of the girls asked if we can do it more often because they had such a great time. The residents appreciated the conversation with the girls.

After celebrating our holiday party for several years at the senior living center, our older girls asked if they could have a more quiet event so they could get know the residents. They organized and attended a tea party this year. They were so happy have such rich conversations with the residents. They talked about politics, travels, holidays traditions, and much more. This has been one of the most positive and fun interactions the girls have had with the residents and we hope to do it again soon.
