On the sign:
העלייה על הקרקע
בראשון למרס 1935 עלינו על הקרקע.
אנחנו הראשונים בעליה על אדמות "אל-חרם". אם כי אנשי רשפון כבר קדחו באר, הם טרם התחילו להתישב.
יום העליה היה יום של מתיחות מוגברת במחנה. כאן גומרים לתקוע את המסמרים בקירות והנה כבר מופיע האוטו בכדי להעביר את הצריפים לשטח. באותו יום הקימונו את הצריף הראשון בנקודה החדשה.
כעת עומדים כבר 2 צריפים והשבוע יתחילו בהקמת עוד שניים.

מתוך "ביטויינו", אפריל 1935

סמל חגיגות 90 שנה להקמת הקיבוץ - שפיים מאז 1927...

Translation of the text on the sign:

Settlement on the ground
On March 1, 1935 we were on the ground.
We are the first to own al-Haram land. Although the people of Rishpon had already drilled a well, they had not yet begun to settle.
Aliya Day was a day of heightened tension in the camp. Here you finish sticking the nails in the walls and here the car already appears to move the huts to the area. That day we put on the first hut at the new point.
There are already 2 huts now and this week they will start building two more.

From "Our Expressions", April 1935

Symbol of celebrations of the 90th anniversary of the establishment of the kibbutz - Shefayim since 1927 ...
