In conjunction with the 50th Anniversary celebration in November, the Education and Technology Committee is looking for construction technology artifacts to show the timeline of progress over the last fifty years.

- Drafting tables

- Computers from the 20th century

- Typewriters

- Walkie-talkies*

- Small tools*

- Pictures of larger equipment

- Other items of interest (Contact Terry O'Rourke)
