“Stones of Signal Hill” a Remembrance Day story-in-song
 

PW1acrop2_16x9_620x350Phyllis Wheaton writes songs, stories and compiles videos about our history and who we are as Canadians. Multi-instrumentalist Tom Poole and bass player Craig James add their humour and harmonies to the shows. Phyllis’ shows are always very entertaining and filled with energy and emotion.

With her band they deliver a wide range of ‘themed’ shows that leave the audience inspired and entertained. Phyllis’ stories and songs inform and educate, which builds pride in our nations history. Their shows include Mother’s Day, Hippie Times and In the Mood for Peace.

Phyllis’ poetic lyrics have found their place in print publications as well. Canadian painter, Real Fournier, published her lyrics to The Story of Become (2005)  in a retrospective of his life works.

 

About Signal Hill/Battalion Park

Battalion Park, originally known as Camp Sarcee in 1915, opened on November 3, 1991 and was built to commemorate World War 1. Members of the Calgary, Lethbridge, Central Alberta, and Edmonton battalions hauled 16,000 stones in sacks onto the hill.

The original stones were used to form the numbers 137, 113, 151, and 51 which represent the regiment numbers of the above battalions. Members of the 137 Battalion fought for years to maintain the rocks and have them declared a historic site. The stones were carefully stored and saved by Stewart Green Properties Ltd.
