Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to our County Auditor Deanna
Dickmeyer. Deanna has worked tenaciously over the course of the last four years

Lincoln County taxpayers will be greatly missed. However, Deanna has been a
club member for the last 5 years and served on several committees during that
time. We are fortunate that the qualities that distinguished her service to the
auditor's office will continue as she serves the club as our deputy treasurer in
