Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Sheppard family in the passing of Ron.

A big thank you goes out to Becky Smith, Matt Young and Don Orford for helping out at the breakfast at the Curling Club in Providence Bay on Thursday.

Auberge Inn hosted a second chocolate workshop on February 8 with local expert Lisabeth from Ultimately Chocolate. The seven Island participants learned to make truffles from scratch. There were two participants from Sudbury who enjoyed the workshop and visited Manitoulin for the first time. This Family Day weekend Auberge Inn is hosting a group of international students who will enjoy snowshoeing and other winter activities. If you see them make sure to say hello.
