PROUDLY SALUTES I
Dr. Marshall O. Watkins
You have a most cordial invitation from your Florida
Agricultural Extension Service to attend the 23rd An-
nual Citrus Growers Institute at Camp Mc Quarrie.
We feel that again this year the Institute is packed with
information that you cannot afford to miss. The topics
are very timely and the speakers are well qualified to
handle them. As in the past there will be an opportun-
ity for you to ask questions on topics of special interest.
Come and enjoy the fellowship and relaxation of Camp
Me Quarrie. Meet your friends for fishing, boating,
swimming, horseshoes, and just plain visiting. We will
be looking for you.
