Please join your neighbours and the King’s Own Calgary Regiment on Saturday, November 11, 2017 for the sixth annual Remembrance Day ceremony at Battalion Park. Originally named Camp Sarcee in 1915, Battalion Park commemorates the soldiers who trained here for the trench warfare of World War I. Members of the Calgary, Lethbridge, Central Alberta and Edmonton battalions hauled over 16,000 stones onto the hill to form the numbers 137, 113, 151 and 51, representing the regimental numbers of their battalions. In 1991, after members of the 137 Battalion lobbied to have the stones declared a historic site, Battalion Park was opened. Join us at this important ceremony during Canada’s sesquicentennial, and participate in a community moment of silence to reflect on the sacrifices made by these brave Canadians.

Date: Saturday, November 11th, 2017
Time: 10:30 am
Location: Battalion Park at Signal Hill
