NJSPLS Celebrates National Surveyors Week

Approximately sixty people came out to commemorate National Surveyors Week at the Lacey Road Baseline Calibration site. Assemblywoman Dianne Gove presented a proclamation from the New Jersey Assembly. The group was pleased to meet her and impressed that she took time out of her schedule to participate in the program.  NJSPLS also received a proclamation from the New Jersey Senate.
A special thank you to Keystone Precision represented by Keith Jones and Jason O’Rourke who gave demonstrations on instruments. Pete Priestner of Cooper Aerial was on hand providing refreshments.
