Labour Day BBQ @ Shipyards Park

Yukon Employees’ Union is hosting the annual free Labour Day BBQ in Shipyards Park.

Date: September 4
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

This year, YEU is asking people to join them in building a Mountain of Mac.  This food is often in short supply at the Whitehorse Food Bank and YEU will be donating $1,000.00 of Mac & Cheese to help address this need.  You can join YEU in this effort by:

  • Contacting YEU and making a Mac Pledge (call 867-667-2331 or email contact@yeu.ca)
  • Bring your Mac to Shipyards Park on September 4 and add it to the mountain!
  • Donate directly to Whitehorse Food Bank

Please share this free event (via Facebook) with your family, friends and community.  Come for the food, for the community and for the massive Mountain of Mac.  We hope to see you there on September 4!
