Honoring Tiny Tots Nursery’s Inez Dade

From the Washington Post -- Three sisters — Inez Dade, Margaret Harris and Vanilla Beane — gathered with friends and relatives to celebrate Dade’s 99th birthday.

Those who travel to the Georgia Avenue Metro station and get there via Rock Creek Church Road are sure to have noticed the Tiny Tots Nursery located at 801 Rock Creek Church Road, NW. But you probably don’t know the story behind the 99 year old senior who runs it, Inez Dade. I have to admit I didn’t know anything about her either until one of my neighbors pointed out the Washington Post article about her published on November 5th. I’m sure I’m not the only one that missed it.

I found it inspirational. Not only about Ms. Dade but also her two  sisters who are also in their 90s. If I read the article correctly, Dade has been operating Tiny Tots since 1972. They are definitely proof that life can continue to be good long after 65.

I highly recommend reading the article.
