The family of Joe Pardue held a celebration at Wilkes Senior Village Assisted Living,  honoring  Pardue on his 96th birthday on June 1.

Joe Pardue of Ronda, currently residing at Wilkes Senior Village in North Wilkesboro, was surprised by his family with a 96th birthday party on June 1.

 Pardue’s children and grandchildren came from out-of-town to participate. His family set up two-way communication and talked about  past family events.

Pardue’s favorite Chick-fil-A meal was delivered to him and the staff in honor of his birthday.

One of the many gifts he received was a digital photo frame which enables the family to share photos of interest, such as how his garden is growing.

Birthday banners and bubbles also helped make the day special. The staff of Wilkes Senior Village assisted with the event.
