Deka Lake Ladies Auxiliary given appreciation dinner

Diana Forster’s regular correspondence for the Interlakes area

The Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department catered an Appreciation Dinner for 40 members of their Ladies Auxiliary (LA) on March 2. Snacks and salads preceded the delicious roast beef dinner, which was followed by decadent desserts, each bearing a “Thank you Ladies” medallion. Erica Lechner was the lucky winner of the potted plant door prize.

The LA is most grateful to their firefighters, who even did all the clean-up.


Birthday bubbly goes to Joanne Levick, Emma West and Danny Jenewein. Congratulations to Karen and Bruce Simundson on their 41st wedding anniversary, March 18.
