Potential new home for 540 Sqn

The Town of Oakville has identified the “Coach House”, a building on the grounds of the Erchless Estate at 8 Navy Street, as being available for other uses. This building would be a perfect replacement for the 540 Cadet HQ at 170 Kerr St, which we are being asked to leave by the Town and is slated to be demolished after August of 2016.

What we are asking is that you click on the following link posted here,

https://securepwa.oakville.ca/Forms/eForms/MuseumCoachHouseCommunitySurvey.aspx

and fill-out the survey provided by the Town of Oakville. In question 17 of your response you will have an opportunity to suggest possible future uses of the Couch House. Please mention your support of a plan to move the 540 “Golden Hawks” Squadron Headquarters from 170 Kerr St, to the Coach House at 8 Navy St, Oakville. Responses must be submitted by July 15th.

We encourage everyone in your household, your friends, neighbours, family, and anyone else you can think of to complete the survey on-line. The more responses the Town of Oakville receives in support of 540 Squadron taking over the Coach House as the new Squadron Headquarters, the greater our chances of success!

For those residents of Oakville, there is a chance to win an iPad 2 just for completing the survey.
