Liberty Tour Follow Up
I would like to thank Liberty Tech for opening their doors for our chapter to tour. We had over 50 in attendance that enjoyed seeing a new facility in operation with very modern technology. I believe it is safe to say that Liberty Tech is the first “New” foundry to be built, in our chapter area, since OSCO New Boston 20 years ago. The Liberty Tech plant is unique in the way the system and casting process flows and each piece is followed by computer and data base technology. For those of you who missed it, you missed a great tour with a gracious host displaying some of the most up to date technology in our industry. Thank you Liberty Tech and all her employees, well done.
After the tour, everyone enjoyed pulled pork and rosemary chicken at the Tavern 42. Jessica Ulmer-West and Ron Franer took the floor for a few moments to field any questions about the tour that may have been missed. Everyone who attended the dinner received picnic blankets and/or coolers furnished by Jessica and The Liberty Foundry Group.
Thank you again to The Liberty Foundry Group and everyone who joined us for the tour and dinner.

AFS GOLF OUTING JUNE 10, 2017
We are happy to once again announce our annual Golf Outing on June 10th. This is where our biggest opportunity is to raise funds for the Student Scholarships. As you know, The Central Ohio Chapter donates to Foundry Educational Foundation, annually, which goes to fund scholarships for students in all the United States. Our chapter also donates scholarships to deserving students in our local chapter area. None of this can be done without your help and support. I have attached the signup sheet for the golf outing. If you are unable to golf, please join us for the dinner, sponsor a hole or just donate to our cause. We do realize that the last several years have been a bit slow but this outing helps finance the students and the future of our industry. We look forward to seeing you there.
