Ladies Auxiliary’s baked goods sold like hotcakes May 18

Community news happening around the Deka Lake area

Two-year-old Ava Hearn

At Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department (DL&DVFD) Ladies Auxiliary’s (LA) May 18 bake sale, the doughnuts and baked goods were almost gone by 9.45 a.m.

The children’s gift basket was won by Mason Uljas; and his mother, Laura, won the mouse door-stop. The huge adult gift hamper went to Deka’s Pat Grotke.

The LA is grateful for the support.

Some 20 LA members did their bit to spruce up Deka Subdivision, May 25. They finished up at the fire hall for lunch provided by the DL&DVFD members, and complemented by delicious cupcakes baked by great cook Bev Traxler.


Sad passings

A longtime Deka resident Evan Jenkins passed away May 21, just one month before his 100th birthday.

Condolences are extended especially to the McCaw family, as well as to Evan’s family and many friends.

The community also extends deepest sympathy to Sulphurous Lake’s Joan Smith and family on the May 20 loss of her husband, Ken.


Book, craft sales

Sulphurous Lake District Volunteer Firefighters Association ladies are holding Book ‘n Craft Sales at their fire hall from 1 to 2 p.m. every Wednesday until the end of September.


Fair books

Bridge Lake Fair (BLF) entry booklets are in all local general stores and at the Donex photography counter in 100 Mile House.

Entries are accepted Aug. 16 at Interlakes Hall, and judged that evening.

This year’s roving BLF Trophy is for High Point Baking.
