An Abbeville man celebrated a very special birthday Saturday with his family.

Minor H. Wright turned 100 years old on this week, so his family decided to throw him a drive-thru birthday to celebrate. They say they wanted the entire Abbeville community to be able to celebrate with them.

The birthday event was held at Greater Pleasant Green Baptist Church from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m.

Family and friends stopped by the church to drop off gifts and cards and to celebrate the special day.

"This is his church, his church family. We're going to have Zoom; he has family coming on to give him tributes on Zoom, Facebook Live. And a drive-by, just to say 'happy birthday,'" explained a family member.

Happy birthday!
