Volunteers, Donors, Sponsors, Dignitaries

On behalf of Field of Crosses, our Founder, J. Murray McCann, and the Board of Directors we wish to thank the many hundreds of volunteers for your support of the Field of Crosses. Cleaning and preparing 3500 crosses, installing the bases, erecting and taking down the crosses is only possible because of your dedication, passion and hard work to ensure we “NEVER FORGET“. Each November during the 11 Days of Remembrance, flag details, pipers, buglers, school choirs, honour guards and thousands of participants come to the Field of Crosses to pay tribute to the Southern Albertans who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Thank you for your support.  Thank you to those listed below for their generous support of the Field of Crosses last year.

To our corporate donors, sponsors and media (listed below), thank you. You help us make the Field of Crosses a memorial tribute that is singular and unique in Canada.

Thank you to the command teams and serving members of the Canadian Forces, Calgary Fire Department, Calgary Police Service, Alberta Sheriffs, EMS and RCMP; you are invaluable partners.

Thanks to the Canadian Forces notably 41 Canadian Army Brigade, 20th Independent Field Artillery (who fire the salute each Remembrance Day) and HMCS Tecumseh; the King’s Own Calgary Regiment, Calgary Highlanders, 41 Combat Field Engineer Regiment and 15 Field Ambulance.

Special thanks to Alberta’s Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable Lois Mitchell, who is always gracious with her support.
Mayor Nenshi and the City of Calgary whose partnership and support we greatly value.

Thanks to the many elected officials of all levels of government and the Calgary Consular Corps who attended our ceremonies.

Finally, to the 3rd Canadian Army Veterans – Ypres branch. You remind us how important it is to honour our veterans for their service. You make us proud to be Canadians as you loyally uphold the Canadian Army’s Motto: “Vigilamus pro te” (We stand on guard for thee)…..We couldn’t do it without you.

Rest Ye In Peace

Rest ye in peace, ye Flanders dead
The fight that you so bravely led
We’ve taken up.   And we will keep
True faith with you who lie asleep,
With each a cross to mark his bed,
And poppies blowing overhead,
When once his own life-blood ran red
So let your rest be sweet and deep
In flanders Fields.

Fear not that ye have died for naught;
The torch ye threw to us we caught,
Ten million hands will hold it high,
And freedom’s light shall never die!
We’ve learned the lesson that ye taught
In Flanders’ Fields.
