NINETEENTH ANNUAL CITRUS GROWERS INSTITUTE
CAMP MCQUARRIE LAKE COUNTY, FLORIDA
(Near Astor Park)
MONDAY to FRIDAY - AUGUST 18 22, 1952.
THE AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION SERVICE INVITES YOU
To: Florida Citrus Growers--
On behalf of the Florida Agricul-
tural Extension Service, it is a
real privilege to extend you a most
cordial invitation to attend the H.G. CLAYTON
19th Annual Citrus Growers Institute to be held
at Camp McQuarrie August 18 22.
The program covers timely subjects of importance
to growers. The progress reports and new research
developments with an opportunity to discuss with
the speakers the work being done, and your prob-
lems as a citrus grower should be of especial in-
terest this year.
Some growers will forego the vacation trip they
usually take when fruit prices are good. The
Institute is a high-value event at low cost and I
recommend this for your consideration. You are
welcome to attend any part or all of the sessions.
The facilities at the Camp are at your service.
