James Leslie Perts Memorial Fund to be Established: "Party On Pertsy!"
The family of James Leslie Perts will be hosting a celebration of life and fundraiser on Sunday, August 21st from 12-4 p.m. at the Celina Moose Lodge Deck.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to establish the James Leslie Perts Memorial Fund which will be donated to Tri Star for the development of a welding/metal testing lab in the Welding classroom. Metallurgy was a passion of Mr. Perts who earned a bachelor's degree in metallurgy and was a metallurgist with the St. Marys Foundry for 47 years. Tri Star Career Compact became one of his many interests after he toured the new facility and saw the hands-on training opportunities offered to area students.
