Stage performances at Foley’s Civic Center may outshine previous shows thanks to a major stage lighting upgrade. The stage lights were changed from high-wattage incandescent bulbs to energy-efficient, multi-colored LED fixtures that can be programmed, according to Pam Harris, Foley’s municipal complex director. When programmed, the new light fixtures can create special effects that completely change the mood for a stage presentation. Much appreciation goes to Keith Nelson for an outstanding job working with groups to enhance individual events using the new lighting. The project was completed thanks to a $40,000 grant received through the State Energy Program.
