SAVE THE DATE! SAGA Summer Reunion!

 

Great news, we are having a Summer Ag Grad Reunion! This will help us catch up for the past two lost years.

 

Friday July 15th, 2022                             A Full Day of Fun                            9 am to 5 pm

As you know, SAGA had to cancel our traditional winter reunions in both 2021 and 2022.  To recognize the grads that have missed out on their get-together, this year SAGA will hold an outdoor Summer Reunion. If you’re interested, be sure to register to attend, via our Webpage at www.saskaggrads.com/register.  As always, all other Grads are welcome to join in the fun!

 

2022 also marks the 50(+1) anniversary of the College of AgBio Crop Development Centre. So the CDC generously offered the use of the Kernen Farm for SAGA to host our event.  This gives you a chance to check the new crops that Plant Sciences is working on.

 

Cost Recovery Registration Fee:  $40 online - Please go to our Webpage for details                                                                                                                   $50 at the Door

Pre-registration: The registration fee covers costs of a beer-garden type event e.g. porta potties, sound system, tables and chairs, plus your meal. Go to our website and register today! Help us plan for the numbers of attendees.



USask protocols are being adjusted according to community risks. Attendees will be required to follow the USask protocols at the time of the event. As of June 1stmasks are still required when inside, but not outside. Check the USask website.
