Ladies Auxiliary members have fun at Christmas party

30 ladies enjoyed the Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department (DL&DVFD) Ladies Auxiliary’s (LA) Christmas party

Debbie Patterson won two of the baskets at the Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary’s Christmas party on Dec. 3.

Some 30 ladies enjoyed the Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department (DL&DVFD) Ladies Auxiliary’s (LA) Christmas party, Dec. 3.

Eighteen beautiful baskets had been assembled by members, and each member purchased at least 20 tickets in the hopes of winning one of the baskets. In the end, three members each won two baskets, and one lucky member won four!

Monies raised totalled $423, which has gone to the 100 Mile District Hospice Palliative Care Society, and then the LA matched that amount to give to the local SPCA.

The LA’s Super G bingo pot continues to grow after no one won it on Dec. 10. The pot will be at least $1,300 when bingo returns on March 11.

Raffle winner

Congratulations to Deka’s Marion Traill who won the South Cariboo Lioness Club’s first-prize raffle prize of a $500 shopping spree at Save-On-Foods.

Director welcomed

Interlakes welcomes Brian Coakley as the new Cariboo Regional District Area L director.

The well-known businessman has big shoes to fill with the political retirement of former director Bruce Rattray, but he will no doubt succeed.

Fishing success

While Bridge Lake and Lac des Roches were not frozen in early December, Sheridan Lake was, and on Dec. 6, eight fishers caught 20 fish ranging from two to more than 10 pounds.

Fishers are reminded to take away all their garbage, especially cigarette butts and plastic bags.


Birthday bubbles goes to Denise Waldner, Maria Watt, Kris Verheul, and with added champagne and caviar, for Russell Ross’ 85th on Dec. 23.

Piper Loft gets 15 big balloons on Dec. 20.
