Last Saturday Richard Hickey celebrated his 80th birthday with a surprise party given by his children Gary Hickey, Jill Johnson, Robin Channon and Mary Alice Douglass.
The party started with two hours of bowling at Tri-City Lanes for guests who could bowl. Afterward, they gathered at St. Mary’s Baptist Church to continue the party. Richard’s grandson Rodney provided the music.
The 2013 Roane Open Art Show in the downtown Harriman building known as The Annex at 431 N. Roane St. will feature dozens of area professional, accomplished amateur and student artists displaying paintings, pottery, photography, textiles and various mixed-media works.
Virtually all of the pieces on exhibit will be for sale. The show will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 14 and from noon to 6 p.m. Dec. 15.
