Selfridge offers ways to get involved in centennial birthday
One of the region’s largest events of 2017 is going to be Selfridge Air National Guard Base’s Open House & Air Show Aug. 19-20. Even more exciting about this biennial event is that Selfridge is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. Attendance is expected to approach 300,000 spectators, especially in light of the fact that the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds are slated to perform.
As you can imagine, putting on such an event requires many contributors to make it a success. Selfridge has a variety of ways you or your business can get involved in the Centennial Open House & Air Show, from renting a chalet to providing content for the event brochure.
In addition, there are also other events set up throughout the year to celebrate the base’s centennial celebration. Titled Inspiring the Next Generation – STEM, these events will be hosted in Wayne, Macomb and St. Clair counties and fit well with Selfridge’s charter of community focus on education. They include Michigan Defense Opportunities in Macomb May 19 and Tuskegee Airmen Heritage in Wayne County May 26. These events are expected to engage approximately 900 local high school students.
