Last Thursday, Sept. 8th, the volunteer chairs for the Denver Girl Scouts’ Women of Distinction event – Christine Benero, Toti Cadavid, Valencia Faye Wilson Tate, Judi Wolf and Erin Yoshimura (not in attendance) – joined members of the Denver community, as well as Girl Scouts of Colorado’s president and CEO Megan Ferland, at a private Girl Scouts’ reception at the Denver Botanic Gardens. This event was one of the many ways these volunteer chairs are asking the community to support Girl Scouts of Colorado during the annual Girl Scouts’ Women of Distinction event. This year’s event will help Girl Scouts’ celebrate 100 years as the organization honors 100 Girl Scouts across the state who have been named Generation Wow! Girls selected for Generation Wow! demonstrate outstanding leadership skills through their work in and outside of Girl Scouts. For more information on supporting the
Generation Wow! program or serving as a sponsor of this event, please contact Kim Lewis at kim.lewis@gscolorado.org.

Generation Wow! Girl Scouts from Colorado met this last weekend, Aug. 20 and 21, in Colorado Springs and Denver to participate in a service project with Girl Scouts Women of Distinction, who are women leaders in the community. During this project the girls and women made worm composting bins that they plan to take back to their communities to help reduce landfill waste and produce a nutrient-rich soil good for fertilizing.

The Colorado Springs Gazette and Denver Post covered these events.

Mother of Generation Wow! honoree Kathryn Conrad also made a photo slideshow of the Denver service project day. Thanks, Stephanie!

Additionally, mother of honoree Cassidy Cheesman made a website about her experiences as a Generation Wow! Girl Scout. Thanks, Kristen!

Girl Scouts throughout the state and country will participate in similar Forever Green environmental service projects during Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary.
