Thanks Mr. Mayor

On a recent visit to your city we had a WONDERFUL encounter with someone you know.

On July 22 your AMBASSADOR OF GOODWILL directed us to the visitors centre that we were looking for. As we were passing city hall, he asked if we would like to see where he worked.

Of course we said yes as he made us feel comfortable.

To our extreme pleasure we quickly discovered that it was your mayor, Dan Curtis. We were made to feel like celebrities as he showed us city hall, his office and the different areas.

Often while vacationing we run into stuffy people that do not care for visitors.

The lasting impression of Whitehorse was just the opposite!! We were made to feel welcome and appreciated.

Thank you residents of Whitehorse for electing a mayor that is,

I am sure a great leader,

but also a GREAT representation of your kindness and hospitality. It makes us want to visit you again for a longer extended stay. For these things we say “thanks”.
