ROME — Gaetano Nasci, of Rome, an Eagle Scout with Troop 44 of Clark Mills, has come to the aid of both a local non-profit agency as well as the furry, four-legged friends it helps with his service project.  

Nasci — with the help of some fellow volunteers — built four wooden benches and four waste stations for the Humane Society of Rome and placed them along the organization’s walking trail behind its shelter on Lamphear Road.

The volunteers also replaced the Humane Society’s “old and rusted flag pole with a brand new one equipped with solar lights,” the agency said in an announcement.

In addition to Nasci and his volunteers, the agency also thanked Lowe’s, which donated materials to help build the items, and Stewart’s Shoppes, which donated funds to help cover related expenses. 

Helping Nasci on the project were: Susan Nasci; Scout Master Mike Dodson; Sarah Inserra; Steve Copperwheat; Russell Sortino; Henry Inserra and James Steates.

The walking trail is an important tool to help exercise the animals at the Humane Society of Rome Shelter at 6247 Lamphear Road and is often utilized by volunteers who help provide needed exercise and attention to the animals.
