Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department’s (DLDVFD) Ladies Auxiliary (LA) quilters displayed their fundraiser quilt in the stunning “Into the Forest” pattern, perfect for “our neck of the woods.”
Tickets go on sale today (June 11), and are available from any member, and on various occasions, at Loon Bay Saturday markets, Interlakes Farmers’ Market and Cariboo Mall in 100 Mile House.
Prizes include the quilt; afghan donated by Debbie Patterson; crocheted tablecloth donated by Shirley Campbell; crib board donated by Gary Sayenchuk; birdhouse donated by Al Ballantyne; placemats donated by Lorna Wiebe; and wine bottle holder donated by Mario Huebel.
Twenty players participated in the LA’s annual crib tournament, May 22.
Participation is restricted to those who have played at least five times over the year, and scores are calculated on points above average.
First place went to Penny Millway, who scored 109 points above her average. In second place, Donna Watson scored plus 101, and Howard Campbell scored plus 69. “Low man” was Bill Murphy with -66.
The Barb Swope Memorial Trophy for highest score went to Penny’s 920 points. Barb was an LA past president and keen crib player who passed away in 2003, but is still fondly remembered.
The community extends sincere sympathy to Helen and Gus Horn, on the May 25 loss of their husband and father, Chris, just shy of his 93rd birthday.
Al and Rita Nordquist and Danny and Joice Jenewein were delighted to be guests at the marriage of Al and Rita’s grandson, Drew Terrill, to Amberly Richert on May 30.
Held at the Heritage Inn Hotel in High River, Alberta, the wedding brought the families together for a very special occasion.
Congratulations to Vanessa Betschart, Leandro Lang, Michelle Lang and Robert Waldner on doing Bridge Lake Elementary School proud at the May 20 elementary schools’ cross-country races.
The school placed second amongst small schools.
Many congratulations go to Olga and Roy Tomlinson on their 65th wedding anniversary, June 16; and to Ruth and Terry Allan on their 55th, June 11.
Birthday bubbly goes to Becky Citra, Alamu Durand, Vera Rottluff and Olga Tomlinson.
