Jaedyn and Emma from Troop 62816 completed their Silver Award project, Little Angels! The girls created an annual clean-up day in their community for a local cemetery in Brighton. They learned how to properly restore a grave from the cemetery manager to help maintain the headstone placement. They got a boulder donated and engraving donated to mark with “Little Angels” for the baby section of the cemetery. The girls paid for with their troop money a new sign in English and Spanish for the cemetery. The cemetery also allowed the girls to help complete and organize their veteran list, so they can properly place flags and wreaths for years to come. The girls inspired the cemetery to plant a new tree and install a bench for loved ones to come and visit their little angel that has passed.

How can you help save the environment? Join us at Denver Botanic Gardens on April 13, 2019 for our Household Elf Girl Scout Exploration Day to find out! Through scavenger hunts, crafts, and hands-on activities, Girl Scouts will learn ways to save energy, conserve water, and reduce waste.

When: 

Saturday, April 13

Choose a 9:30 a.m. or 11 a.m. start time

Where: Denver Botanic Gardens

What: Household Elf Brownie Girl Scout Exploration Day

Girl Scout Exploration Days offer girls the opportunity to explore plant-based themes through a variety of hands-on activities and take-home projects. Each exploration day offers several activity stations set up throughout the Gardens for groups to explore at their own pace. Pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it.
Through a day of interactive hands-on activities Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to explore the many different areas of the Gardens as they learn about ways they can help the environment. Girl Scouts will:

  • Discover simple ways to conserve energy at home.
  • Complete a scavenger hunt to learn more about water smart gardening.
  • Decorate a reusable shopping bag to take home.
  • Explore vermicomposting.
  • Plant a house plant to take home.

This program is designed for Girl Scout Brownies. Admission is $12 per girl, which includes admission to the whole Gardens for the day. One adult (troop leader or parent) for every five Girl Scouts is admitted free of charge. Additional adults and non-participating siblings (those not participating in the take-home activities) receive a reduced admission of $7 each. Siblings who wish to participate in take-home activities should register as Girl Scouts.

Use the link below to register or call (720) 865 – 3785.

This was our first time selling Girl Scout Cookies as a troop. The girls each met and exceeded their goals! The girls chose to donate their Hometown Hero cookies to the West Metro Fire District at station 15, and also toured the fire station and learned about what to do if there is a fire in their home. We then went to Murdoch’s to purchase food and other items for the animals at the South Platte Humane Society. We plan to deliver them at a later time.

Troop 71 Hometown Hero delivery

Way to go Nellie and Sydney for helping deliver our 180 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to Project Angel Heart, our Hometown Heroes! Thank goodness they had a cart we could use after we carried in the first load. Project Angel Heart will give the cookies to their clients and share some with the volunteers. As a bonus, we decorated bags for their deliveries to clients, which we learned are sometimes hung as works of art around their volunteer room.

They gave us a tour and we learned a little more about them as an organization. They started in 1991 delivering nutritious meals to 12 people with life threatening illnesses and have grown to deliver to over 12,000 weekly. They were very appreciative!
