I’d like to thank everyone and their family’s for joining us last night for a family fun night!
Eric Weiffenbach Presented The Foundry In A Box with his assistance, Jessica Ulmer-West, Art Boehme and Larry Buergel. Over 40 members, students and children joined us for a very fun night of interaction, molding and learning. A great time was had by all and everyone had something to take home with them. Thank you Eric for putting this together. Pictures should be posted to our website next week.
Winners for the night was really the members. Anytime you can teach a child, you are a winner. But, we still had the drawings as well. Winner of the 50/50 was Nick Ulmer. Nick received $40.00. The winner of the R.S.V.P. was Tori Hicks. Tori is the Vice Chairman of the OSU Student Chapter and she won $50.00.
