The annual Mick reunion was held Aug. 21 at Pike Lake State Park. The weather was great and there was a good crowd. It is suspected that there were some that didn’t sign the book.
Jimmy Mick gave the prayer and dinner began around 1 p.m. There was a lot of great food, including a variety of meats, casseroles, vegetables, desserts, and drinks. A special thanks to Andrew and Chris who grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.
The family would like to thank everyone who came and those who donated and bought items for the auction. Thanks to Wesley Rhoades, who was the auctioneer, with Jeremy and Spring helping him. The children enjoyed the playground. Even through there were some mud it never stopped everyone from having a great time.
Everyone enjoyed viewing pictures of their ancestors and playing cornhole and bingo after the auction. There were a few new faces this year and some that were not able to attend.
