After the Greeley Tribune interviewed Bella about the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Program, our phone started ringed off the hook! A number of friends called us, including Scott James, a local radio personality and the mayor of Johnstown. Scott wanted to buy $100 worth of Girl Scout Cookies to donate to the Windsor Police Department. He also wanted to buy $100 worth of cookies from a Johnstown Girl Scout to donate to the Johnstown Police Department.
Scott also put a call out on social media to all the local mayors in Northern Colorado challenging them to do the same. Bella went on Tuesday morning and sold him 25 packages. On Wednesday afternoon, we met up with the Windsor Police Department to deliver the cookies on his behalf.
It was really fun. The officers were very grateful and Scott was very fun to be on air with!
Girl Scouts has helped me become a risk-taker because when I was at Sky High Ranch I rode a long zip line. I was very nervous to do it, but once I got on I had so much fun! I was one of the few girls who actually let go of the rope when I was riding it.
Girl Scouts has also helped me to become a leader because at troop cookie camp, we were going on a hike and the girls in my troop were getting discouraged. I started to sing and the girls sang along. This helped the hike go better and the girls had fun. This is one of the many ways Girl Scouts has helped me become a leader.
Girl Scouts has helped me to be a go-getter because last cookie season my goal was 1,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies. I wanted to meet the goal I met last year, but instead I went 1,053 packages beyond!

Brownie Troop 73033 from Windsor delivered cookies last week to the their Hometown Heroes at the Larimer Humane Society! The girls voted to recognize the kind, caring people there who work to rescue animals in our community and help them to find a forever home.
While we were there, the girls were also able to tour the facility and visit with the animals. So much fun!
