Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department (DL&DVFD) Ladies Auxiliary’s (LA) annual raffle tickets are now on sale at $2 each or three for $5.

Tickets can be found periodically outside Interlakes Market, or just ask any member.

There are six wonderful prizes, including the Oklahoma Twister quilt, and several prizes chosen especially for men.

All will be drawn at the LA’s Fall Dinner Dance on Oct. 25.


Bingo schedule

The LA’s family bingo is now ongoing upstairs at Deka Fire Hall, every Wednesday through Aug. 27.

The doors open at 6.15 p.m. and play starts at 7. Come enjoy the game and the bake-table raffle. The Super G pot currently stands at $600.


Speedy recovery

Get well very soon wishes go to Carolyn Charlton and Moira Davies.



Congratulations to Interlakes grads who earned scholarships: Kimberly Rottluff, Mikayla Rottluff, Carissa Ruscheinsky and Nicole Weston. Well done, and good luck in your future studies.

Birthday bubbly with added caviar goes to Joice Jenewein for a nice round number, while wedding anniversary congratulation are sent for Susan and Mel Grahn’s 26th, and Lorraine and Frank Jerema’s 27th.


New operators

New at Interlakes Corner is The Hilltop Restaurant (previously Marcel’s) now being run by Cynthia Keri and Gary Prime of Lone Butte.

Residents for three years, the couple offers a regular Canadian menu at reasonable prices. At Interlakes Economic Association’s inaugural Farmers’ Market on June 28, Gary was seen roasting a pig.

Shoppers at the market were entertained by the accomplished Front Porch group from the 108 Mile Ranch area.
