Daycare volunteer doesn't mind the age difference

It's safe to say, not many daycares have a 5-day-a-week sit in great grandma on hand to help with the kids. Probably even fewer have one who's 100 years old.

Minnie started her volunteer work 13 years ago. She has grown to love the children who are around 3 years old.

During her volunteer hours, the woman they call "Meemaw" helps with activities, reads during story time, and helps serve lunch. If you watch her in action you'd have no idea her age.

Although she says this is the year she might retire, 3 years ago when we interviewed Minnie, she said the same thing.

It's likely if we were to visit again in another 3 years, there would be a new generation of kids, but the same Meemaw hugging on each one.
