One of Sioux City’s best known “greeters” is receiving a lot of greetings and well wishes of her own this week.
Mikki Paul, who welcomes hundreds of people every week in her job as a greeter at the Singing Hills Wal-Mart, is celebrating her 99th birthday.
Her family, including two daughters, and many friends celebrated the occasion with a birthday party Sunday at the Sioux City Public Museum.
Before Wal-Mart, Paul worked at many of Sioux City’s movie theaters, including the Gordon Twin and 75 Drive-In’s, along with the Plaza Theater and Southern Hills Cinema:
OC….whiz at figures. :24
When many people her age would retire, Paul started working at Wal-Mart at age 73, and is still greeting people with a smile over two decades later:
OC……..not quite ready yet. ;15
She will be honored by the Woodbury County Board of Supervisors with a proclamation in her honor at their Tuesday meeting, the day Mikki Paul turns 99.
