Thank you to the
Klondike Defence Force Fund
Yukon Foundation !
May 25, 2002
In May of 2001 UFO Yukon Research Society submitted an application to the Klondike Defence Force Fund through the Yukon Foundation. The application was accepted and a sum of $400 was granted to the non-profit UFO Research group.
The Yukon Foundation brochure (pg. 10) describes the Klondike Defence Force Fund as following:
Established by funds donated in the 1960s to fight the takeover of Klondike history by other parts of Canada; proceeds for research or studies in Yukon history.
The Yukon Foundation instruction to applicants elaborates further on the type of project for which the Klondike Defence Force Fund is intended:
To be used for any project which furthers the preservation of Yukon History
The funds were used to publish a report and also to help maintain our Yukon wide toll-free UFO reporting telephone line. Without this vital communications link, this report would not have been possible as written. Time spent in documenting UFO cases and producing this report was donated by UFO Yukon members.
This report contains the following and will be available in June 2002:
A featured case titled Giant UFO Encounter over the Gold Fields near Dawson City, Yukon. A suitable case to highlight since it occurred in the geographical area from which this fund originated. . Pg. 2 - 10.
A summary of 20 UFO reports that occurred in the Yukon in the 2001 calendar year. ...Pg. 11 - 14.
The number of Yukon UFO cases documented through history. How do the 2001 numbers compare? Pg. 14.
A UFO sighting witnessed by School children walking to their bus stop in Mary Lake subdivision on Dec 12, 2001. Pg. 15 - 16.
A UFO case from the 1930s . Is it related to the featured case? ...Pg. 17.
We would like to thank the Klondike Defence Force Fund for funding this worthy project and are certain that the witnesses are thankful that their historical accounts have been preserved.
