4 SCITUATE JUNE 7-13, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER EDITION SCITUATE – Residents came out on Sunday to see Scituate High School step up its curb appeal thanks to the Scituate Lions Club installing two new LED signs to replace the school's old manual sign. During the yearly Lions Scholarship Breakfast on June 3, Lions President Rick Besser and project leader Terry Nolin dedicated the sign to the school. The new sign is capable of sharing multiple mes- sages and can be remotely accessed through a cell phone or computer. Celebrating the 100-year anniver- sary of the Lions Club International, each local club was asked to donate to a Legacy Project, or a substan- tial project with lasting value, in the community. The Scituate Lions are the third-largest club in Rhode Island, with 94 members from across the state. For the Scituate Lions, the com- munity project was donating two Watchfire LED signs and a blue light-up topper with the words, "Scituate High School and Middle School." It replaced the former changeable letter board, which was also a Lions project put in more than 30 years ago, according to Besser and Nolin. The $28,000 project also included electrical wiring to the sign, and LED lights for the school flagpole and war memorial monument in front of the building. "We didn't spare any expense," Besser said. The signs are water and weather proof, and cycle through messages, including one that reads, "Thank you Scituate Lions." Principal Michael Hassell said the sign helps move the school into the 21st century. Supt. Lawrence Filippelli and Assistant Supt. Michael Sollitto attended the dedication, and thanked the Lions for the sign. "This is great, it looks wonderful and it could work as a community message board to get the word out through the town," Hassell said.
