The Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) Ladies Auxiliary’s (LA) annual raffle draw was held at Aug. 6’s fishing derby.
The quilt went to Sheila Bonter, and the electric boat motor was won by Don Herd.
Retired Deka firefighter Gary Parker won the wooden cheese platter created and donated by Gary Sayenchuk; and the LA’s Karin Menning won the afghan created and donated by LA member Debbie Patterson. Liam Dennison won the beautiful bird-house created by the LA’s Lorelei Jones.
The ladies sincerely appreciate the public support of this, their biggest fundraiser.
