NORWOOD - A simple idea from a Norwood community member turned into reality.

The World War I monument at Moshulu Parkway and Hull Avenue was cleaned up and lit up, all to pay tribute to veterans.

The $100,000 project was funded by Councilman Oliver Koppell through the Parks Department. It added three lights aiming up at the memorial and an American flag behind it. There is also a new concrete walkway.

The monument was unveiled in 1925.
