The City of Welland is honouring our local veterans and fallen soldiers, with a new monument at Woodlawn Cemetery.

The memorial has been more than five years in the making.

A grand unveiling was held yesterday; with Mayor Frank Campion, Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey and members of the Welland Legion in attendance.

According to the Welland Tribune; another 246 plots will also be added to the cemetery for fallen soldiers and their loved ones.
