WICHITA — Not everyone necessarily knows her by name, but if you've ever been in the Old Mill Tasty Shop, you've no doubt noticed the friendly, funny, always-smiling Gale Cowan.
The restaurant is surprising her today by celebrating her 25th anniversary of being a waitress there.
"It'll be a thank you to her," owner Mary Wright says.
She says Cowan has served generations of customers.
"She remembers everything about them," Wright says. "She's definitely our little fixture here."
