DENVER’S PMEL ACTIVITIES
“Illegitimi Non Carborundum”

WELCOME TO DENVER!

The Denver website was created to augment the original PMEL.ORG site with news and events taking place in the Denver area for the benefit of both in-state and out-of-state PMEL/Metrology members, keeping them informed of various social events taking place during the year. This website took on more significance with the transference of Lowry’s Metrology School to Keesler AFB, Mississippi. With Lowry AFB’s BRAC closure in 1994, PMEL/Metrology operations as such ceased to exist in the Denver Metro Area. However…there remained hundreds of PMEL instructors and staff members who settled in the region after having taught for years in the Metrology School prior to having retired from the military. While Lowry AFB’s Metrology/PMEL school was still in operation there were numerous PMEL social functions maintained throughout the year, including an annual winter gathering during the month of December and an annual summer gathering in the form of a picnic, usually held on the Fitzsimons Army Medical Center’s picnic grounds. Instructors and school staff members, along with their families, would be in attendance with numbers reaching into the hundreds on occasion. There would also be well-attended monthly gatherings for those interested at the Sunset Lounge, a local pub near Lowry AFB. With the passage of time, attendees have fallen off the roles, resulting in fewer showing up for these events. So long as we have one or two in attendance and/or continue to experience site visitations, we will try to keep it up and running to honor the commitments, the involvement, and the memories keeping the Metrology School’s spirit and past alive!
