War Memorial Oxford and Large Streets

Little noticed on the triangle of land in front of the 7-11 at Large St. and Oxford Avenue sits a memorial dedicated to all who have served in our nations wars.  It came to the the attention of a several people this summer and a clean up was mounted.  State Senator Tartaglione had the flag pole painted.  Volunteers from these groups cleaned up: Northwood Civic Association, Knights of Columbus, John P. McHugh Council 4935, Hispanic American Riders Association, Latin American Post 840 of the American Legion and the Boy Scouts.

On September 11 at 7PM a re dedication of the monument was held amidst traffic and passerby.  Short slideshow below marks the occasion.  If anybody knows the Boy Scout troop number, please email it to me.
