The Army Ball 2020 Committee is currently organizing the entertainment for the evening. Our vision is to provide an evening full of Army pageantry, music and a few surprises!
This year the Ball will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands, during which the entire First Canadian Army deployed to free the Dutch people from four long years of fascist occupation. Through the Hunger Winter of 1944-45, the final battles from Nijmegen to Groningen in the North, and Operation Faust, where convoys of Canadian trucks brought food through the enemy lines to the staving Dutch cities, Canadian soldiers formed bonds of friendship that last to this day and are reflected in the care given to the final resting places of the 5,712 Canadians who made the supreme sacrifice.
After-dinner dancing music will be provided by SWAY Band Ottawa.
