Deka’s annual street cleanup is scheduled for May 25.
Residents are asked to clean the ditches on both sides of their homes up to their nearest full-time neighbours, and then meet at the fire hall to do Burgess Road up to Mahood Lake Road.
Everyone then returns to the fire hall for lunch at noon, catered by Deka Lake & District Volunteer Fire Department (DLDVFD).
After a decade or so of community debate on the subject, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) at its April 17 meeting approved funding to consider the feasibility of Sulphurous Lake District Volunteer Fire Department either merging with DLDVFD or becoming a stand-alone CRD fire service.
See Bridge Lake School’s production of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz at 1 and 6 p.m. on May 16, for a donation of $5.
