On Dec. 2, Harry and Joyce Knick welcomed his sister and niece from West Virginia to celebrate his 80th birthday. They enjoyed his favorite German chocolate cake to recognize his actual birthday. Harry’s sister, Betty Rickard, presented him with a Christmas Log Cabin quilt that she had handmade.

That coming Saturday, they gathered with children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and many friends at Sun Lakes north clubhouse for a fun party. Harry’s children provided a delicious buffet lunch. Guests participated in dancing with music performed by The Radio Flyers vocal crew. The afternoon wrapped up with cake and a champagne toast.
