Thank you everyone – volunteers, staff and girls– for making our first, statewide Girl Scout Join Night and Juliette Gordon Low Birthday Celebration a resounding success!
Nearly 1,800 girls and more than 700 adults and siblings joined GSCO staff and volunteers from Pueblo to Grand Junction for an evening of skating, games, birthday cake and fun! 470 girls brought non-Girl Scout friends to the events and host service units and troops earned more than $4,000 to better serve the girls in their areas! SWAPS were shared, 1,700 patches given out, and dozens of troops joined in a statewide community service project by providing birthday boxes for children and families in need! Juliette Gordon Low even visited the Aurora venue to receive the birthday boxes in her honor and girls in Westminster held a flag ceremony on roller skates! Some troops held short badge workshops to introduce new girls to the process of earning badges with Girl Scouts.
GSCO also gave away six iPod shuffles and Girl Scout branded earbuds to some very excited winners in a drawing at the Denver and Colorado Springs locations. Congratulations to the winners!
Keep your eyes open for more giveaways this spring!
A special thanks to Skate City who provided the venues for the Denver, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo events and to Spin City, which hosted the event in Grand Junction. Both companies were great to work with and provided superior support to the girls and leaders in attendance.
We are looking forward to a spring, “After the Cookie Crumbles” event, April 21, 2015. If your service unit would like to host one of the events, please contact Suzie Shride.
