Welding Department Raffle Off Smokers

In a continued effort to raise funds for the Welding department, WSC student welders have again built two 64″x20″smoker/grills that will be raffled off May 14, 2018.
After successfully auctioning off two trailers in January 2017 and two smoker/grills again in May 2017, WSC’s Welding Instructor, Tim Delorme, thought creating more auction items would continue the students’ on-the-job experience and help raise further funds for the department.
