How does it feel to be 106 years young?

HELLERTOWN, Pa. -

How does it feel to be 106 years young?

Bethlehem native Minnie Poulton has the answer.

"The same that it did at any other time. I don't feel like 106. I feel more like in the 80s," she said.

Minnie celebrated her birthday with family and friends at Weston Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Hellertown.

Poulton tells 69 News she remembers a time before there was electricity in homes and recalls when the first automobiles started hitting the roads.

Family and friends have thrown a big birthday party for Minnie every year since she turned 100.
