Page 4 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 16, 2020 Lights illuminate flags at Fellsmere Park once again W hen Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora realized that the flags flying over Fellsmere Pond were no longer being illuminated at night he set out to remedy the situation. He began researching replacement lighting for burnt out lights that were now obsolete. Working with All Tech Electric Business Owner John Spadafora, they found special LED lighting that was a perfect fit for the location. On brand new poles, the lights now shine further than ever before at a distance of about 80 feet and 30 feet in the air fully illuminating the flags as well as the entire area. A big part of the challenge to repair the lights in general was that they were on an old pole at the water's edge and it was extremely difficult to get a truck and equipment to the location. Councillor Spadafora tracked down the equipment and also rented a lift.
