On June 1, 2020 Dave Knowles celebrated his 90th birthday. Approximately 30 people gathered outside in the common area at The Villas in Lumby to help Dave mark this milestone birthday. Although Dave couldn’t receive any hugs or handshakes due to the Covid-19 distancing rules he did receive the well wishes and congratulations of all those in attendance. Coffee, tea and a beautiful cake were served to those in attendance.
Dave was the first resident to move into The Villas, the first of its kind adult community in Lumby. Dave and his wife Sally moved to Lumby from Sorrento in October 1993 and lived in one half of the first unit built while their unit was being constructed. The other half was the show home. Dave still lives in the unit they moved into in May 1994.
