Honouring a Legacy: Murray McCann Steps into new role as Director Emeritus.

Every November, the solemn beauty of over 3,500 crosses lining five acres of Calgary’s Memorial Drive serves as a poignant tribute to the fallen service members of Southern Alberta and Canada who sacrificed their today for our tomorrow. Known as the Field of Crosses Memorial Project, this stunning display was founded in 2009 by Murray McCann, a Calgary businessman and philanthropist on a mission to foster patriotism and assure that present and future generations never forget.

After over a decade with Murray as the Chairman of the Board and proud Founder, Field of Crosses is set to enter this year with new leadership and Murray’s continued support.

Murray carefully considered his decision to step down from his role as Chairman of the Board to embrace new adventures and spend quality time with his wife, Carol. Murray’s unwavering dedication and astute leadership have played a pivotal role in the growth and success of Field of Crosses.

Although stepping down as Chairman of the Board, Murray will remain an invaluable asset to Field of Crosses, assuming the position of Director Emeritus. In this role, he will continue to offer his wealth of experience and guidance, ensuring a seamless transition to new leadership.

As part of Murray’s succession planning, the Board of Directors welcomes Sean Libin as the new Chairman of the Board. Sean, a familiar face to many in the Field of Crosses community, brings a wealth of experience as a community builder, successful businessman, and dedicated philanthropist.

"We are immensely grateful for Murray's years of service and leadership. His vision and commitment have been instrumental in shaping the organization. Please join us in extending our heartfelt thank you to Murray McCann for his exceptional leadership and dedication to the Field of Crosses” - Susan Schalin, Executive Director & President of Field of Crosses

Well done, Murray. Thank you for all of your work.

Thank you Murray for your great vision in founding FOC and your many years of leadership and support

Thank you Murray for your great vision and all the amazing time and effort you have put into this Beautiful project over the years!!

Congratulations! Great program!!

You have been a community inspiration in so many ways Murray. The Field of Crosses is just one part of your legacy.

It has been an honour to have met you & had the chance to meet you and your wife in person at Kensington Legion 264. Thank you.

Murray has built such an amazing legacy with Field of Crosses and many other projects. I can’t express how humbled I am to try to fill the Chairman’s role that he has passed along. I’m thankful that he will never be too far away as he remains active on our Board at his own will. We won’t let you down Murray!

Enjoy your Well Earned Rest and Time with Your Charming Wife Carol

February is Black History Month. It is a time to reflect on the remarkable contributions that Black Canadians have made to the fabric of our society and as armed forces members.

Many Black Canadians overcame great challenges just to enlist in the military, and still faced discrimination even once enlisted. Despite this, their sacrifices and achievements over the years have shone through.

In their honour, we will be sharing the stories of Black Canadian Veterans and their contributions to our military throughout the month.

January 27th carries the weight of history as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, marking 365 days since the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp, now in its 80th year of remembrance.

Let's take a collective pause to honour the memories of the brave souls who suffered and commemorate the resilience of survivors. May this day serve as a timeless reminder to stand united against hatred and intolerance.
