Canadian Airborne Memorial CairnWork is progressing on the Airborne Cairn Project in Edmonton and they are planning on a simple unveiling ceremony at approximately 1215 hrs on 10 August to dovetail with the end ceremony at the PPCLI Plaza in Griesbach that same morning. Their plan is to just have a simple, yet significant, dedication/ unveiling ceremony supported by a military Honour Guard and attended by those VIPs, Airborne Association members and guests who can make it, and who have contributed to the program in various ways since the beginning.

They plan to hold the production of the bronze Donor Contribution/Support Plaque for a brief period after the ceremony, but not for long. If you want to get your Association/ Organization name on the plaque it’s a minimum of $2500; for individual names $1000. This is a chance to have your name in history, especially when this Cairn gets registered as a National Memorial! If you are interested, cheques should be made out to the Canadian Airborne Memorial Cairn Project and sent to:

Canadian Airborne Memorial Cairn Project
PO Box 414
St. Albert, AB T8N 7A2
