Degrove Participates in Charity Golf Tournament

The tenth annual CH2M Hill Employee Sponsored Bikes-n-Bytes Charity Golf Tournament took place on October 28, 2010.  Tom Tracz (pictured below), Randy Tompkins, and Will Pyle (pictured above) participated from Degrove.  The Florida Crown Chapter of the Florida Surveying and Mapping Society sponsored a hole at the tournament.

All proceeds of the Bikes-n-Bytes Golf Tournament are used to purchase new bikes and helmets, as well as computers for underprivledged youth in the greater-Jacksonville community.  The computers are donated to community centers in the Northeast Florida region.  Over the past 10 years, the tournament has generated enough funds to purchase approximately 400 bikes and 75 computers. 

The tournament was held at Deercreek Country Club in Jacksonville.  Degrove thanks CH2M Hill for continuing to organize the event and support Jacksonville’s youth.

Vote NO on Amendment 4

DeGrove Surveyors encourages all Floridians to Vote “NO” on Amendment 4 on November 2, 2010.

Amendment 4 is a “Vote on Everything” amendment proposed for Florida’s constitution.  The amendment would require all exceptions to local comprehensive plans to be voted on in a full election (at the taxpayers’ expense), as opposed to being handled by those who are elected to make such decisions.  Floridians would be forced to decide potentially hundreds of comprehensive plan exceptions every year.  If passed, Amendment 4 would surely eliminate growth and development in Florida, and wreck an already struggling economy.
