Troop 77904 hits final goals while visiting with Boulder County Sheriff’s Deputy Jennifer Mendez

On Saturday, at their last troop booth of the season, five Brownies from Troop 77904 in Longmont earned their “Uniform to Uniform” patch while hitting their final goals and helping their sister Girl Scouts.

Boulder County Sheriff’s Deputy Jennifer Mendez visited the troop’s booth at Safeway in Longmont, where she spoke with the girls about her job and life as a female law enforcement officer. The girls listened and asked great questions. They also shared with Deputy Mendez what they learned from selling cookies this season – hard work, goal setting, gratitude, and above all, teamwork.

After Brownie Nina M. came down with a bad cold and was unable to work her final booths to sell the last 25 packages she needed, two Brownies from her troop – Claudia K. and Maible M. – stepped up to sell on her behalf, helping Nina reach her goal of 1,000 packages. Having reached her goal, Ava J. also gave Nina a some cookie sales as well.

Then, after reaching her final goal of selling 1,250 packages on Saturday, Maible continued to sell to help another Brownie in her troop. Anagrace L. was short 21 packages of hitting her goal of 525. She had been hoping to earn the Build-A-Bear Experience, but her family had to shift their focus from selling to helping her grandmother, who is recovering from surgery. Claudia also gave some of her cookie sales to help Anagrace hit her goal! With their help, Anagrace is going to Build-A-Bear!

For Troop 77904, cookie season was a true team effort among the parents and the girls this season. The troop of 11 second graders finished the season with three girls selling more than 1,000 packages!

Officer returns to the scene for cookies

Submitted by Jennifer Jurgens

At a council booth in front of one of our local grocery stores, we saw a police car pull up next to us and out come two officers, walking casually. Georgie (first year Brownie) asked if they would like some cookies and to take a picture with her. One officer replied “we gotta go help someone, but then we’ll be back.”

Time goes by.  More and more police cars come. At one point, there were five police cars! Then, an ambulance! One man was walked out and they helped him into the ambulance. I told Georgie that they may not be able to come back and the way things were looking she said she understood. More time goes by. Some officers leave. Well, about an hour and a half later the last three officers bring another man out in handcuffs, They pause to tell her they hadn’t forgotten their promise and would be back after putting this guy in the back of the car. Sure enough, five minutes later one officer came back and said, “A promise is a promise!”

He took a picture with her and got a package of Samoas.

The girls were so excited to invite our local fire department to our booth. They got to meet one of the firewomen and chat with her about their favorite cookies. They also got to sit on the front of the fire truck after they donated packages of cookies to be shared with the rest of the fire department.
