Louise Cassidy, 81, a resident of Summit Ridge Center in West Orange, New Jersey, had her wish to work with a Girl Scout troop on a badge granted on Friday, April 25, 2014.  Cassidy taught elementary school at St. Rose Catholic School in Newark for over 23 years.  She also volunteered for eight years as a den mother for St. Rose’s Cub Scout troop.  Having spent a lifetime around children, Cassidy now misses the time participating in their emotional growth and development and would like to again be involved with children.  Twilight Wish arranged for Cassidy to help the members of Pleasantdale Junior Girl Scout Troop #20274 work on their “Playing the Past” badge.  Each troop member researched a period in time and shared it with the group with a poster and historically-correct paper doll.  During the third and final troop meeting at Summit Ridge Center, troop members, their parents and Cassidy shared refreshments and learned about each Girl Scout’s period in time.
