Special 85th Anniversary Plans

The History Hangar and 400 Squadron Historical Society are planning to hold a 'first class' BBQ on Saturday, August 12, 2017 on the tarmac in front of 400 Tactical Helicopter Squadron's Hangar at Canadian Forces Base Borden.

We will be inviting all current and past members of 400 Squadron, past members of 411 and 2 Tactical Air Support Squadrons and members of the RCAF Commemorative Squadron.

A large marquee tent, with tables and chairs, along with a full bar serving soft drinks, liquor, wine, bottle beer and draught beer (all priced just a wee  bit over cost) will be set up on the tarmac in front of the hangar.  In the event of inclement weather, we have the option of moving the bar and tables and chairs inside the hangar while leaving the BBQ's outside.

Cost is estimated to be $30.00 per person and $50.00 for two. (children or grandchildren welcome at reduced rates).  Menu will include steak, hamburgers, chicken and all the trimmings.

The following schedule of events on the 85th Anniversary Celebration BBQ are still tentative but will give you an idea of what's in store.

10:00 to 16:00 Tours of the Base Borden Museum will be available to those interested.
11:00 to 15:00 Registration for the BBQ is open and will provide name tags, and a special Souvenir Program 
11:00 to 14:00 Tours of the 400 Tactical Helicopter's Museum located in their hangar.
12:00 to 18:00 BBQ and very large screen projection of all History Hangar videos ongoing all day.
14:00 to 14:30 Gathering at the 400 THS's Honour Roll Monument to honour all our fallen.

Other events are being planned for the BBQ but it is too premature to mention them at this time.

To determine if we proceed with the detailed planning and commitments necessary to bring off such an event we urge you to complete the two question form below and, should you wish leave any comments or suggestions you desire.
