Michiana man celebrates 100th birthday by sawing wood


How would you like to celebrate your 100th birthday?  One Elkhart man chose to saw wood at his party.

Leslie Mast celebrated turning 100 Saturday at Hubbard Hill.  Friends and family shared stories of Mast then they all went outside to watch him saw a pine log.

Mast is a World War II Navy Vet and is just grateful he made it through the war and went on to live such a long life.  "I'm just fortunate that I didn't get run over or hurt during the war I've been fortunate."

Mast was also presented with a certificate from Congresswoman Jackie Walorski thanking him for his service.
