About the Speakers
At over one hundred years old, Mildred looks twenty years younger, has all her marbles, works out at the gym, is a card shark playing bridge, canasta, pam, and a whiz at mahjong. She’s an expert at managing her financial portfolio –she does puts and options. She doesn’t miss a Happy Hour and sits in the middle of the bar so she can schmooze with everyone. Oh, and she still drives and drives better than her friends who are decades younger.
