  • Debra did some extra work and extended our advertising for the M.O.C. to the Girl Scouts of Colorado website calendar! We are really excited for Girl Scouts to experience a project done by a Girl Scout!


  • Connecting & Protecting volunteers and supporters enjoyed the amazing ceremony put on by the US Marine Corps Memorial in Golden, CO! Debra was unable to attend, but was excited to hear some friends went in her place.

“I was so happy to hear others were able to enjoy the moving ceremony at the USMC Memorial. It’s one of my favorite ceremonies to attend each year and wished I could have attended this year with my friends.”

  • Debra has been working on some special surprises to be released and take place at the M.O.C. events this summer. Some involve an exciting release of C&P gear. She cannot wait to share them at each event!
  • On top of all we’ve done this month, Debra reached out to her connections to see about 9News and local newspapers coverage for the events and C&P.

April was the Month of The Military Child! We find it just as important to recognize the military as we do their children, so we shared several videos on our Facebook page.


  • Debra Zerr got to celebrate earning her Gold Award along with 27 others at an event at the Capital! She had the opportunity to meet some state representatives and talk with her fellow Girl Scouts.
  • Debra also made several appearances on the GSCO Blog and in a local Newspaper!
