TWC hosted the 10th Annual Yukegtaaraat Celebration on April 30th, 2011. Honorees were Neva Rivers of Hooper Bay, Esther Green of Bethel and Peter Atchak of Bethel. More than 150 people attended this celebration, which honors people who have made contributions as helpers, leaders or supporters for their families, communities or the entire Y-K region. Thanks to all the businesses and organizations who were sponsors of this event, and to the dozens of people who contributed to the silent auction. We love celebrating these wonderful people who play important and vital roles in our communities throughout the Y-K region.
