Work continues at the site of the World War I Doughboy Monument at Wheeling Park. However, the re-dedication ceremony that had been set for Memorial Day has been rescheduled for Armistice Day on Nov. 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The monument has been undergoing repairs and restoration at the hands of professional restorer Giorgio Gikas in Detroit. The monument has been a fixture at Wheeling Park since 1931.
