Photos courtesy of Lynne Menz: A 7-foot-tall bronze statue of a doughboy from World War I was moved inside the Orleans County YMCA on Thursday. The building on Pearl Street in Medina was originally an Armory and was used to train soldiers. The Medina Armory opened in 1901 for Company F, which formed in 1891. In 1977, the National Guard left the Medina Armory. The site has been used as a YMCA for more than three decades.
