News Tidbits – For those of us who stop at the Voyageur (Batchawana) for a fabulous apple fritter as we head into the Soo, there is an additional reason to stop. River Rock Gifts is now renamed to River Rock Gifts North and is moving into a new store located inside three-remodeled lodge rooms at The Voyageur’s Lodge and Cookhouse. Starting tomorrow River Rock Gifts in the Soo is holding a moving sale, and the new River Rock Gifts will be open for the Mother’s Day Weekend.
