View brochure for registration and information
On behalf of the Surveyors Historical Society (SHS):
Registration is now open for 2013's national “Surveyors Rendezvous” August 28-31 in and around historic Philadelphia. SHS urges everyone to attend.
Rendezvous 2013 is shaping up to be a very significant surveyors' event--not just for SHS but for our entire profession. At Rendezvous 2013, we will not only mark the “Real” Stargazer's Point in rural Chester County, plus dedicate a new historical marker along South Street in Philadelphia--but we will also honor Charles Mason at the cemetery where he lies buried (in an unmarked grave, two blocks from the Liberty Bell). His memorial monument will be an authentic 1766 Mason-Dixon Stone, from the famous line he and Jeremiah Dixon laid out nearly 250-years ago.
Please see the above registration brochure for all details. Mail-in registrations are now being accepted, and on-line registrations will become available shortly. The existing SHS website, www.SurveyorsHistoricalSociety.com
, has been augmented by a special new Rendezvous website, www.SurveyorsRendezvous.org
, which is now live and will feature on-line registration capability very soon. Please visit both places.
SHS' all-volunteer “Rendezvous 2013 Committee” has been working hard for more than three years preparing for this important event. We'd like to see our profession come to Philadelphia in great support this August, plus we also invite the public at large. Our ceremonies at this Rendezvous transcend any single profession or organization. We're adding new pieces to American history itself.
Kindly feel free to forward this information to anyone you feel may be interested. We look forward to seeing you at Philadelphia this summer. We'll “Rendezvous” on the very spot where William Penn first landed in 1682. Please join us.
Warmest best wishes and we hope to see you there!
