NewsChannel5 was on the scene and Lion Howard McCain's interview was seen on the noon Channel 5 News. Part of that interview-
"Do you mind if I ask how old you are," said NewsChannel5's Stephanie Ramirez.

Painesville Lion's Club volunteer Howard McCain answered, "I'm 87-years-old."

"And you're still building picnic benches," replied Ramirez, half in shock.

"It's just what we do," said McCain laughing, "and it beats shoveling rocks any day! Yeah. That's no fun!"
