We got a visit from the sheriff

The Girl Scouts of Troop 35 in SE Aurora selected the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department as their Hometown Hero this year. They sold over 8,000 boxes of cookies – at least 500 of them donations for their local police station.

When we dropped the 500+ boxes of cookies off, a volunteer officer took some time out of his evening to give us a tour of their facility in Centennial. The girls got to see the different departments, interact with dispatch, and spend some time inside a police car.

A few days later, we were contacted by the Sheriff himself! He was so grateful for our generous donation that he insisted on coming out and thanking the girls in person. He came to our recent troop meeting and spent a good half hour with the Girl Scouts,  talking and answering questions. We were honored to have him with us and thrilled that the second grade Brownies got to have this experience.
