GETTING THEIR SHINE ON:  Messalonskee High School Girls Soccer held its 6th annual “ShineOn Saturday”  September 18 at Messalonskee High School to honor former Messalonskee soccer player Cassidy Charette by hosting a girls youth soccer mentoring day.  Charette was a leading Eagle mid-fielder and a youth mentor before she was killed in a hayride accident on October 11, 2014. Girls, ages Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 5, attended the event, which is organized each year by the Messalonskee Girls Soccer teams and the ShineOnCass Foundation. 

The ShineOnCass Foundation was created to educate, inspire, and empower youth to shine their own light through acts of kindness and volunteer charitable activities. For more information about the Foundation or becoming involved in ShineOnCass initiatives, visit or email
