Given that Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department (DL&DVFD) Ladies Auxiliary’s Fall Dinner is on Oct. 18, at which time the raffle will be drawn, the ladies auxiliary October meeting has been changed to Oct. 1, starting at 10.30 a.m.

Celebration of life

Deka’s Andy Nixdorf, who passed away May 17 at the age of 57, was a very well-liked man.

This was evidenced by the dozens of friends, many from out of town, who came to his Celebration of Life on Aug. 30.

Lots of happy stories were told and many a tear was shed. Andy is sorely missed.

Couple welcomed

Deka Lake is happy to welcome Phyllis and Bud Barry who have purchased the McCune home.

Bud won the Best Four-Wheeler Award at the Interlakes Economic Association’s Aug. 24 Show ’n Shine at Interlakes Corner, and Phyllis spends much of her time tying flies.

Bud is hoping to become a volunteer firefighter, and will be warmly welcomed.

Pizza support

On Sept. 2, Interlakes Market ran a pizza by donation event, which was instigated by owners Bob and Anneli Goheen whose home burned down Aug. 26.

All money raised from slices of pizza sales was to go, according to the buyer’s choice, into one of four buckets labelled for each of our local volunteer fire departments (VFDs).

At day’s end, $1,128.90 had been raised for our VFDs, as follows: Deka, $385; Interlakes, $382.35; Lone Butte, $197; and Sulphurous, $164.55.

All of VFDs’ members are sincerely grateful.


Birthday bubbly goes to Tanya Lucente, Carney Myers and Dave McCaw.
