Local Faces 7: Clarence

Clarence The Welder

My dad and my good friend Dave are excellent welders, so I thought they'd appreciate Clarence.
He's the village welder, so when a piece of our gate rusted off, he was the man to talk to.  He came right out and made the fixes on the spot, making sure to arrive when we had kouran (electricity).

Clarence is also the man who will be making the platform for some chorine dispensers that we're going to implement in this area, which will aid in water purification and hopefully keep cholera out of the village.

His welder was an original work, but it did the job.  His sunglasses served as his welding glasses.
