Historic Calgary Week is presenting a Centennial event at Signal Hill Sunday July 26, 2015.
We are gathering people together to form a group to sing at the Stones of Signal Hill / Historic Calgary Week.
Male and female singers, kids; people of all ages are welcome to join this one-off chorus event where we will be singing one song together. Follow this event page for more information on practice times, music, etc.
Battalion Park, located on the hillside of Signal Hill, overlooks the Sarcee Nation. The area was a military reserve prior to World War I for the Canadian Forces. The hill features 20,000 stones hauled by soldiers and arranged to form four numbers (137, 113, 151 and 51). The numbers correspond to the four battalions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force who trained in that area before leaving to fight in World War 1.
- 51st Battalion represented the men from Edmonton
- The number 151 was arranged by the men in training from the Red Deer area
- 113 were the Lethbridge lads
- The 137 Battalion were the men from Calgary and area.
This year will be the 100th anniversary of the stones, and you can be part of the ceremony!
