Small town troop helps in big ways

Troop 37151 from Rocky Ford set up a “no contact table” for truckers to make themselves something to eat. Living in a rural area on a main trucking route allowed the girls to get creative and use leftover cookies and a portion of their cookie proceeds to help truckers when dine- in services were suspended. The girls refreshed the table as necessary and maintained their distance leaving only some good food and sign to remind the truck drivers how much they care. The┬ásigns read, “Truckers, please help yourselves, Troop 37151” and “Thank you very much, we appreciate all you are doing.”

Girl Scouts serve at Capitol Tree event in La Junta!

Written by Donna DeVries-Hestand, Membership Manager of Girl Scouts of Colorado

Girls from four troops from Rocky Ford, LaJunta and Lamar helped serve the attendees of the Capitol Tree event with samples of Girl Scout cookies. Several hundred people gathered in the cold evening air to view the People’s Tree, sing Christmas carols, watch the Koshare Indian Dancers, drink hot chocolate, eat cookies and visit with Santa. The drivers of the 14 vehicle caravan were given boxes of cookies to take with them as a thank you.
