Video: Lenny Holden talks Claflin Fountain Installation

The restoration of the Claflin Fountain on the town common took years of planning and months of work. After taking down the deteriorated old fountain with ease, the installation of the major pieces of the restored fountain took about 18 hours throughout 2 days and lots of twerks and adjustments to make sure the fountain was installed just right.

Sculptor of the fountain Jeff Buccacio and his team featuring Keith Murray of New England Air, Al Medeiros and Paul Ferreira of O.B. Hill Trucking& Rigging worked hard through 2 hot and humid days to get the fountain installed. In the video below you will see some of the hard work that went into the installation and hear from the chair of the Fountain sub-committee Lee Holden as well as Jay Guelfi and Eric Sonnett of Parks & Recreation and Community Preservation Chair Henry Kunicki.
