Dedication for the Replacement Bronze Donor Plaque at the 6PM Initial PointPosted July 09, 2019The dedication for the replacement bronze donor plaque at the 6PM Initial Point was held on June 22. Surveyors in attendance represented three of the five 6PM states. Including a group of interested people, there were around 25 people at one time who came to the site. The forecast of rain along with uncertain road conditions prevented many others from attending. When the manhole lid was removed, nearly the entire hole containing the stone and brass disk was full of water which had to be bailed out. The concrete pad surrounding the monument was cleaned off and the cracks were sealed. Concrete joints in the areas around the donor plaque and obelisk were also sealed. Attention was given to the 1935 triangulation station and its associated marks since they had been neglected (See attached pdf). Those attending discussed the future needs at the site which will be made known when cost estimates are secured.
