Kim Lighting to Light WWII Veterans Memorial

Kim Lighting, Gloucester, Mass., will be providing outdoor lighting for the Gloucester World War II Veterans Memorial in its hometown. The donation is part of Kim Lighting's “Shine The Light” initiative.

The memorial pays tribute to the men and women of Gloucester who fought in World War II. According to the Memorial Committee, 5,665 men and women from Gloucester fought in the war, which represented 22 percent of the city's population and was double the national average of 11 percent.

The memorial is located at Kent Circle in downtown Gloucester. “We are so pleased to be able to illuminate this memorial for all to see,” says Bill Foley, vice president and general manager of Kim Lighting. “These brave men and women fought for many of the freedoms we have today, and the city of Gloucester is rightfully proud of its men and women who represented our country with great pride and honor.”

The lighting currently in use at the memorial does not provide proper illumination; instead causing a shadowed area that creates an unintentionally gloomy feel. The Memorial Committee wanted to provide improved lighting that would welcome visitors and create a more uplifting atmosphere to recognize the city's veterans. Kim Lighting is providing architectural floodlights, which were scheduled for installation in August.
