Field of Crosses: Remembering Our Local Soldiers

The Field of Crosses is a memorial of 240 white crosses in City Park. Each cross represents one person from Kelowna who lost their life in the service of our community. Students will gain a deeper understanding of what this means by participating in a research project, a virtual tour of the Okanagan Military Museum, and a visit to the Field of Crosses. This program is funded by the Rotary Club of Kelowna.
