Scholarship for Four Lakes area

Diana Forster’s regular correspondence for the Deka Lake area

The Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) Ladies Auxiliary’s (LA) March 7 meeting welcomed new members Teresa Francis and Georgie Westbrook.

The LA is sponsoring a $500 scholarship for the first time this year. It is open to residents of the “Four Lakes” area. If none apply, the residency may be enlarged to include Interlakes from Lone Butte to Lac des Roches.

Food Safe

A Food Safe class is scheduled for May 29 at Deka Firehall. This is only for members of the LA, VFD, Deka Lake & District Ratepayers’ Association and Mountain Spruce Community Centre Society.

If you wish to participate, call Penny Millway at 250-593-4521 to see if space remains.

Chairlift

By way of thanking Dori Dennison for installing the chairlift at Deka Firehall, the LA ladies presented him with a $200 gift certificate for RONA. “Now you won’t have to climb those stairs anymore!”

The LA is looking foward to welcoming the Log Cabin Quilters for lunch at their next meeting, April 4.

Tickets for this year’s raffle, which will be drawn at the August fishing derby, go on sale in early April.

Congratulations

Birthday bubbly goes to Polly Black, Claire Myers and Cheryl Parker. Congratulations to Isabelle and Les Poirier on their 59th wedding anniversary and to Celia and Joe Visccher on their 49th.
