Friends and family of Washington resident Don Wells plan to celebrate his birthday June 14 with a drive-by birthday parade.

Organizers are encouraging those who drive by to “beep, honk, yell and wave” as they greet Don from a safe distance. The parade will be from 1-3 p.m. that day. In case of rain, a make up date will be June 21. The party is at Don’s daughter’s house at 1002 E. Jefferson St. in Washington.

Guests can’t get out of their car but they are encouraged to take some time to drive by the house, where Don will be taking time out from picking up sticks and mowing at his place.
