Joan Young had an 80th birthday she won’t forget.
Complete with bagpipes, Young’s family recently put together a surprise birthday parade that she could view from her balcony at the retirement community she lives at in Qualicum Beach.
Her daughter, Janet Cook, organized three sets of family members to form the parade. The party included four generations and a bagpiper leading the procession.
Before the parade started, Young’s family gave Berwick staff gifts and drawings to pass along. Young had no idea the party was coming.
“This was a total surprise and much enjoyed,” she said.
