Steven Laudage of Massapequa completed his Eagle Scout service project in Massapequa during the weekend of Sept. 22 and 23. The project involved correcting some of the problems on and around the Greenbelt Trail. The trail is almost three miles in length and goes through the Massapequa Preserve from Merrick Road to Linden Street. Laudage directed the remarking of the entire trail, cut back overgrowth along the mostly unpaved trail, replaced part of a rotted footbridge and cleaned up areas in which parties had been held. Richard and Lisa Schary of Friends of the Massapequa Preserve and the Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference sponsored the project. Steven is a member of Troop 576, which meets at the United Methodist Church in Massapequa Park.
