Gary Annesser holds the ladder while Billy Hammon tightens up lights creating a Christmas display. The employees with the Sikeston Parks Department spent time Monday afternoon at the gazebo in the Malone Park fixing the lighting. Earlier this month, the gazebo went dark after vandals, systematically crushed each of the Christmas lights, which were donated to enhance the site, and severed some of the rubber cords leading to the lighting. Volunteers who have worked for the past several years to enhance the gazebo, indicated while disappointed, they will continue their efforts to maintain and improve the site.
