Deka Lake LA family bingo over until December

Diana Forster’s regular correspondence for the Deka Lake area

The Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary’s (LA) Family Bingo is over until the Dec. 11 Christmas game. It went out with a bang when Deka’s own Linda Shores won the largest-ever Super G pot of $2,415 on Sept. 4.

The LA is most grateful for Diggin’ the Cariboo’s generous donation of $200 in $25 gift certificates, which went on bingo’s weekly raffle tables. The LA’s next meeting is at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2 at the Deka Firehall, at which time the fall dinner will be discussed. New members are always welcome.
