Membership: Can be purchased at the Yukon Made Store. Don't forget about the $50
volunteer fee. If you volunteered time in 2012, just let Colin, Chris,
or Kyle know in the office. They'll help you figure out whether that
meets the entire commitment or part of it. (And, there's no need to
feel guilty if you didn't have time to volunteer - we hope you'll
consider it $50 well spent.) 2013
Store: Tuesday to Saturday. (Tuesday & Wednesday
11 - 5, Thursday & Friday 11 - 6, and Saturday from 11 until 4)
You can find the work of over 20 local artisans as well as information

Yukon and information about the
