NY woman celebrates 103rd birthday

A 103-year-old bell ringer from New York is still getting in the holiday spirit even after all these years.



Pearl Sutphen just celebrated her 103rd birthday, but you wouldn't know it. Sutphen still volunteers when she can at charities like The Artic League and The Salvation Army.



Sutphen says her secret to staying young is pushing herself as far as she can. She says walking and exercising is the best thing she can do to stay on her feet.



To put things in perspective, when Sutphen was born, William Taft was president of the United States and The Titanic was still an unsinkable ship.
