The Motley Police Department made a citizen's hundredth birthday extra special. They shared the unique way of celebrating on their Facebook page saying:
Billie turned 100 years old today and told us that she has never been in trouble in her entire life, and her only birthday wish was to ride in a squad car. So we of course obliged and gave Billie a ride around town in style in the front seat of the squad car with the lights and siren running and the fire department escorting us.
The firetrucks that were part of the escort dawned signs wishing her a happy birthday, essentially creating her own birthday parade through town. Billie's entire family got to be there for it, and the police department wished her a happy birthday and hopes she gets to celebrate many more.
The average life expectancy in Minnesota is about 77 years, and Billie has impressively beat that number by a long shot. Making it to 100 is no easy feat, and should be celebrated in the biggest way. I'd say that this mini parade and cop car ride put on by the Motley Police Department was the perfect way to kick off a new century for her. Happy birthday to you Billie!
