The captain and crew of HMCS Whitehorse will visit Whitehorse during the Canada Winter Games.

The Whitehorse is a Canadian frigate patrolling the West Coast.

The Yukon capital’s namesake ship and her crew visit us each year by mooring in the port of Skagway.

They frequently participate in one event in the summer and one in the winter.

This year, they will take in the Games.

The captain and 15 crewmembers will visit March 4 to 11. They’ll stay at the cadet camp and volunteer for various tasks.

They will also help load snow boxes for one of the large snow sculptures that will be carved during the week of festivities.

The sailors will present a cheque to the city, collected from their onboard fundraising efforts, for equipment for youth in the community.

VISITORS PART II

Citizens of sister city

Lancieux to Whitehorse

Students and dignitaries from Lancieux, France, will visit Whitehorse from February 12 to 20.

The 26 visitors will be on hand for the Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous celebrations and will stay until the first weekend of the Canada Winter Games.

They have volunteered to assist with the Games and, like the crew of HMCS Whitehorse will also help fill the snow boxes for snow sculptures.

City council has invited the delegates from Lancieux to the civic dinner being held to launch the Rendezvous events.
