A happy belated 70th birthday to Kay Nickel (Allan). Kay turned 70 August 29 and her birthday was celebrated September 2. It was a great celebration attended by family members, large in both family members and love. Many family members painted beautiful rocks, for Kay’s flower gardens. Rocks from as far as Arizona, Colombia Fields, PEI, Nova Scotia and many other locations were gifted to Kay.

May you enjoy many more years and beautiful flower beds, from all well wishers in our area.
