"I am proud of the girls for their dedication to the residents and for visiting over the course of the last three months," said Karen Fitzgerald, co-troop leader.

Alden Estates of Barrington surprised the girls with a special presentation and reception that involved the troop not only receiving their badges but also being given certificates, Valentine's Day goody bags and freshly baked cupcakes and goodies.

"It has been a positive experience," Fitzgerald said. "It is nice that the girls have an opportunity to see there is more outside of school than just selling cookies or earning a badge. They can actually help brighten someone's day."
