This delay is due to our Accountant that is preparing the financial statement has had some time delays due to unforeseen personal circumstances. 

The HSY Board wants to unsure that all information is presented to the membership at the AGM, so this week delay will allow the information to be complete and ready for the membership to view.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 5 pm, Thursday, April 25th at the High Country Hotel Ballroom on 4051 4th Avenue, Whitehorse, Yukon. Attendees are invited to gather and share their stories of Brent’s life.
