Family bingo back in Deka Lake

Diana Forster’s regular correspondence for the Deka Lake area

Clocks go on this weekend so it won’t be long before spring when Deka Lake & District Ratepayers’ Association’s swimming buoys will go in at the busiest accesses: Deka 6 and 8, and Sulphurous’ Recreation Site.

Intended for our youngsters’ safety, they also provide boater awareness that swimmers are nearby.


Family bingo will be back at the Deka Firehall on March 20 and 27. Doors open 6:15 p.m. and the play starts at 7 p.m. The Super-G will be over $1,000!


A Celebration of Life will be held for Ali White from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 21 at Deka Firehall.

Ali, who was a staunch member of Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary, passed away on Jan. 22.
