The annual Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association banquet was held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 153 in Tillsonburg, Ontario, on Saturday, October 15. One of the most anticipated events for the association finally returned since the pandemic and came back stronger than ever.

This year’s event included the introduction of the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association’s (CHAA) 2022 Board of directors, slideshow, awards presentation, ticket sales, fundraising auction, and silent auction. A special slideshow tribute was presented for the members who lost their lives over the past couple of years.

This year guest speaker was Ted Barris, who is the author of the books Behind the Glory, Battle of the North Atlantic and The Great Escape, among others.

A special thank you to all the volunteers who worked tirelessly and made the event a success and Tillsonburg Legion Ladies Auxiliary for providing a wonderful dinner service that we all enjoyed.

The Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association is a non-profit organization, founded in 1985, to acquire, preserve, restore, maintain, display and demonstrate the Harvard aircraft and other aircraft associated with the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP).
