The Central Ohio AFS Chapter has been beyond helpful in bringing the Foundry Club at Ohio State back to life.  To help say thanks, The Ohio State University Foundry Club has made several trinkets that will be used as party favors for the Central Ohio Chapter’s annual Winter Party.  Below are a few examples.

These show just a few of the many things that can be created down in our foundry.  Come down and let’s make something together!

AFS Central Ohio Chapter Scholarship Winners

The AFS Central Ohio Chapter hosted our student chapter last evening where our very own Adam Hodges spoke on our projects, activities and plans for the future.

Following our talk, The Central Ohio Chapter announced the three winners of their annual scholarship.  The winners of these awards, each with a value of $1,500, were Andrew Klarner, Janet Meier and Justin Helton.  Winning the award was based, on thier commitment to the Foundry Industry, the Club and the community.  We are very proud of the winners and hope to have another successful group of students for next year.

Next year the scholarship may involve an actual casting and a higher dollar amount! Keep a lookout for what’s to come!
