At their May 2 annual general meeting, the Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) Ladies Auxiliary (LA) welcomed new member, Sherline Spencer.
May 27 is Clean-Up day. Everyone is asked to clean the ditches on both sides of their home to their nearest permanent neighbours and then meet at the firehall at 11 a.m. Together, they cover the roads leading into all lakes and return to the firehall for lunch provided by the VFD.
Elections saw president Patty Nash and treasurer Ruth Marx in mid-term. Vice-president Val Dennison graciously accepted a second two-year term; and Laurie Sayenchuk was warmly welcomed as the new secretary for two years.
Deka’s ice went out at 4:48:29 p.m. on May 2.
VFD Ice-Out raffle winners comprise Trevor McGowan, 4:45:40 p.m.; Laurie Sayenchuk, 4:10:10 p.m.; and Spike LeGrand 6:18:27 p.m.
