Energy Conservation Can Be Romantic!

 Want to set a romantic mood this Valentine’s Day? We have an idea that will allow you to dial up the ambiance, reduce your energy usage, and have a chance to win a great prize.

We’re challenging you to host a candlelit dinner on Thursday, February 14th. No electric lights; just the soft glow from candles. Post a photo or short story on our Facebook page about your special meal and we’ll put your name in a draw for a ‘breakfast in bed’ picnic basket. The basket will include a number of locally made products like jam, bread, coffee, massage oil, and slippers. It’ll give you a chance to keep that love going!

You must post your story or photo no later than 9 a.m. Yukon time on February 18th. We’ll award the prize later that week.

If you’re a restaurant owner or operator and you’re planning to host a candlelit dinner at your establishment on Valentine’s Day, let us know that too. We’re happy to promote any Yukon restaurant that is going to show some love for its customers and the environment this Valentines by offering ‘conservation dinners’.

One last thing for those of you taking part in our candlelit dinner challenge: in between whispering sweet nothings in your sweetheart’s ear, you can quiz that person using some Table Top Trivia questions we have prepared. Watch for those to be posted here next week.

What about including old-fashioned oil lamps, torches, bonfires?  Back in the day (which was a Wednesday, by the way!) candles were very much a luxury and usually reserved for folks with coin.  My, my how the times and values have changed. How about also cooking your meal without an electric stove? That would be a challenge. And no propane either. That usually requires an electric start….something to think about.
