Retired Farmville chiropractor Dr. Ed DeRegibus was surprised with a drive-thru birthday party for his 70th birthday Tuesday, June 2. DeRegibus, who served the area for 35 years in his practice, has been a resident at The Woodland in Brookview assisted living since February. According to his wife, Missy, DeRegibus has a degenerative neurological condition that requires getting some extra help in life. “He was completely surprised by his drive-thru birthday party,” Missy said. “It was attended by about 10-12 cars full of friends and well-wishers, who brought balloons, banners, and cards. He was very happy to see everyone. Participants were offered cupcakes as they drove through, and at one point, everyone stood in front of their cars and sang happy birthday, led by Jon and Sherri Marken.
