Warren, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - While most of us are getting to celebrate the 12/12/12 craze for the first time... one lucky lady is celebrating for the second time!

Lilly Nutter was born December 12, 1912 – or the other 12/12/12.

But for those in warren Indiana this special lady needs no introduction. She celebrated with a slice of pizza at the local "East of Chicago" in downtown Warren surrounded by family and friends.

Even at the age of 100, Lilly is still an active member of the Warren Chamber of Commerce making calls to local businesses before every meeting encouraging all to attend. But what she is most proud of is her work with the troops. She has been sending care packages to soldiers stationed overseas for the past few years.

She says, "Although my goal was a thousand, I couldn't stop. It was the thanks were beautiful that I was getting from the troops. I mailed my 1,181st box two days ago."

If you know a troop stationed overseas and would like to send them a care package, Lilly has offered to help. All you need to do is send an e-mail to lillylincoln@webtv.net titled "Troops." Include the soldier's first and last name and full mailing address, as well as how long they will be stationed at that location. She says it typically takes about 2 weeks to arrive.

But that’s not all for the birthday girl. In fact tonight marked her sixth birthday party so far. The biggest one will be held this Saturday at the Heritage Pointe Community Center in Warren, IN.
