Safety glasses and hard hats will also be provided, but if you have your own and can bring them please do so to insure we have enough for everyone. **


Students, remember this year any student that attends four meetings, the Mobile Section will pay for their first year AWS Membership with a completed membership application. In addition, all students that attend our monthly meetings this year will be eligible for end of the year prizes.  The more meetings attended the better the chance of winning. Tickets for the drawings are based on the total number of meetings attended. Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners, the first place prize being a portable welding machine.  Prizes will be awarded at our upcoming May meeting.
