Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary quilters showed their membership this year’s unfinished fund-raising quilt, which is well on its way.

The quilt, in the pattern “Cozey Camp,” in beige and burgundy, is first prize in the raffle which will be drawn at the Fall Dinner on Oct. 21.


New ownership

Interlakes Market has recently changed hands. So, at this time, the community would like to express its deepest appreciation to previous owners, Bob and Anneli Goheen for their unwavering community support over the last 13 years. They have been outstandingly helpful to everyone and will be sorely missed.

We also welcome the new owners, whose on-site manager is Navi Brar, and wish them every success.


Information session

Age-Friendly is holding an information session with 100 Mile’s Fire-Rescue chief, Roger Hollander this afternoon, March 23.

It is at the Valley Room behind the Red Coach Inn from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Information on the Northern Health Connections bus service for out-of-town medical appointments will also be available for handout at the meeting.



Birthday bubbly goes to Polly Black and Claire Myers.



I must apologise to the Highway 24/Interlakes Lions. It is they who kindly provide the annual Children’s Easter Party, not Interlakes Community Centre Society as stated in my March 16 column.
