A 50th anniversary reunion for the students of Greenmount Agricultural College of the 1964/65 year will be held at Greenmount on Friday 26th June at 12 noon.

This year was a significant one for the college in that for the first time they admitted female students and then only for the horticultural course. In those days the only course offered by the college was a one year certificate course.

In the 1964/65 year 75 young men studied agriculture and five young men and two young women studied horticulture.

The organisers would like to hear from as many of their student year as possible and look forward to an excellent turnout on 26th June.
