15th Annual Red Carpet Tour: Recap

 

Two weeks ago, YCB hosted its 15th annual Red Carpet Tour and what a fun, informative and food filled day it was! This year’s Red Carpet Tour saw a total of 13 participants from various government departments and the private sector. Thanks to the Beringia Interpretative Centre for kicking off the event and for the Westmark Whitehorse for catering the breakfast. Our ground transportation sponsor, Standard Bus drove the group around all day to properties for site visits which included, the Old Log Church, Yukon Transportation Museum, Coast High Country Inn, Edgewater Hotel, Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre, MacBride Museum, the newly opened North Light Innovation Hub to tour (co) space & Yukonstruct’s new spaces. For lunch we were treated to local and delicious delights prepared by Chef, Ayla Smith of the Woodcutter’s Kitchen at the Woodcutter’s Blanket. In the afternoon, we visited the Yukon Wildlife Preserve and Lumel Studios to learn about the various pre and post meeting activities there are to do in and around Whitehorse. Our day ended off at the newly opened Wayfarer Oyster House where YCB staff drew names for door prizes while sampling oysters and smoked fish. Thank you to all of our members, partners and sponsors for helping make this day possible – we couldn’t do it without you!
