It is with deepest regrets that we must announce the cancellation of Army Ball 2020. While the decision was difficult to make, we prioritized the health and safety of all of our guests and wanted to keep everyone safe from the COVID-19. We will be issuing full refunds but ask for your patience as this may take up to a month to be fully completed.

Furthermore, if you had made a booking at the Hilton Lac-Leamy hotel through the Army Ball group block, please note that we will release the room for you. Should you have not booked your rooms through the group block, you will need to communicate with the hotel to cancel at least 24 hours prior to your check-in. For questions, please contact LCol Fran Chilton-Mackay (Ret’d) at We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to hosting you next year on April 17, 2021.

Army Ball Gift Pickup: The Army Ball gift, that was designed and made especially for our “Liberation Ball”, has arrived from Holland and will be available as a memento to all those who purchased tickets! Please hold onto your Orange Gift Coupon which will be required for pick up.
Until such time as the Covid-19 "stay at home/work from home" orders are lifted there will be no distribution of the 2020 Army Ball gift. We will update this website with a collection plan when we are able do to so.
