Steamboat Springs-based author Sue Leonard shared a fantastic program with Junior Troop 52622 regarding the experience of an author and the creative process in conjunction with their Scribe badge. Ms. Leonard shared excepts from her fantastic book and the girls were enthralled with the characters and her personal history shared!

In addition to showcasing ‘a writers desk’ and her personal writing process, the girls were able to ask questions regarding her inspirations and challenges. The girls were also given a very special treat when Ms. Leonard gave them each a very special and meaningful paper flower, as referenced in the book excerpt shared with the girls. Additional details including the insightful questions asked by the girls can be found on the writer’s blog.

The girls had a wonderful time and Ms. Leonard was a fantastic and engaging presenter!

Girl Scout Cadette Troop 13558 from Steamboat Springs hosted a 2015 World Thinking Day event on Saturday, April 4.

About 60 Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies and Juniors participated in an afternoon celebrating “making peace through partnerships” as they enjoyed working on team-building games, making friendship bracelets and acrostic peace poems, eating snacks from the Middle East, experiencing a peace play, collecting money for UNICEF, and learning a fabulous dance to celebrate world peace. A fabulous time was had by all, and all girls were directed to “take action” by spreading the theme of world peace through one friendship at a time!
