At Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department’s (DL&DVFD) Ladies Auxiliary (LA) June 10 meeting – last until October – members welcomed new president, Louise Green, and new treasurer Ruth Marx. Vice-president Cheryl Chamberlain and secretary Mary Weight are in midterm.

The meeting also welcomed new member Cinnamon Knutson.

Louise presented long-service pins to Jean Nixdorf, 20 years; and to Penny Millway, Laurie (Hill) Sayenchuk and Penny Szach, five years. Laurie was not present.

The ladies then enjoyed a delicious potluck luncheon.

Farewell potluck

The irreplaceable pair have been fantastic community supporters for nigh on 40 years and will be dearly missed. They go with our love and fond memories.
