PHCC attended the Bristol County Plumbing & Gas Inspector Association 10th Annual Clam Boil in Westport on August 19th. Chris Costa, Ed Majewski, Scotty O’Brien and all provided everyone with an enjoyable day of music, food, prizes and a chance to connect with some industry associates. Many PHCC Associate members including Viessmann, Dan Davis Sales, Viega and RWC were out in full force displaying their products and offering training. It’s nice to see so many great people from the Bristol County area who care so deeply for the Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Industry turn out for such a worthy cause.
