McDonald's throws surprise birthday party for longtime employee

Rilly Bass turned 86 Thursday

INDIANAPOLIS - A local McDonald’s restaurant threw a surprise birthday party for an 86-year-old employee Thursday.

The store in the 9800 block of East Washington Street wanted to celebrate Rilly Bass who has worked at the store for the last 18 years.

Friends, family and co-workers joined Bass for her special day and she even got a proclamation from Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard.

"I just enjoy it you know, I just enjoy coming to work, I tell my family I said some people have to go to work, I say I get to go to work," Bass said when she was asked how much longer she plans to continue working.

Bass was told to spend the rest of the day taking it easy, but she said she really likes to work and may not be able to do that.

Happy birthday Rilly!
