Betty O’Brien has been volunteering in the Gallery Store for 45 years and still comes in almost every Thursday to help the Store accountant with the books and organize the files. Not bad, considering she turned 100 years old on March 3, 2012. (According to Betty, who still lives independently, “100 just sneaks up on you.”) On March 1, MAG staff and volunteers gathered to celebrate Betty’s big day.
