WELCOME!

The   Denver   website   was   created   to   augment   the   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!
