Colorado Springs Girl Scout earns patch from Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame

To celebrate Women’s History Month, my mom took me to CSU in Ft. Collins and I met my cousin Raechel. We all walked to the library on campus and checked out the exhibit on display about Colorado women who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. It was really interesting. My favorite was learning about Susan Helms. How amazing to be a part of so many firsts for women! She attended the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, where I’m from.

The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is excited to partner with Girl Scouts of Colorado to provide girls across the state an opportunity to learn the stories of women who have shaped our state and the nation’s history with courage, leadership, intelligence, and creativity. Girl Scouts are future female leaders of Colorado and the Hall of Fame recognizes and preserves the accomplishments of past and present Colorado women. – M.L. Hanson, Founder of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame

I want to be a pilot. I appreciate that Girl Scouts provides the opportunities for me to learn about women who are already pilots and working in the industry.

I am looking forward to attending a program given by the Colorado 99’s again. Hope there is another one soon.

National Girl Scout Cookie Day Patch Program

national cookie day patch

The GSCO Program Team is excited about the upcoming National Girl Scout Cookie Day on Feb. 8th, and we’ve created a National Girl Scout Cookie Day Patch Program that all girls are encouraged to participate in to get involved in this exciting day! The focus of this patch program is on the five skills girls learn from selling Girl Scout Cookies (goal-setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics). It also encourages selling activities on Friday, Feb. 8th, since there will be a lot of talk around the nation about Girl Scout Cookie time. If a girl participates, she can purchase the patch featured above in one of our council shops.

Best wishes for an exciting 2013 Girl Scout Cookie Program!
