Col­lege cel­e­brates ma­jor mile­stone

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Lon­gerenong Col­lege lead­ers are keen to in­volve the Wim­mera com­mu­nity in 130th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions later this year.

Busi­ness de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Donna Winfield, in con­firm­ing the Oc­to­ber 5 and 6 cel­e­bra­tions, said the col­lege was keen to share the mile­stone with the re­gion.

“The col­lege has pro­vided 130 years of prac­ti­cal agri­cul­tural ed­u­ca­tion in the heart of the Wim­mera,” she said.

“As a cen­tre of ex­cel­lence in agri­cul­ture it is in­grained in the so­cial and eco­nomic fab­ric of the Wim­mera-mallee.”

An Oc­to­ber 5 black-tie gala din­ner in Wim­mera Events Cen­tre’s Alan Heard Pavil­ion at Lon­gerenong is set to be a ma­jor high­light of the oc­ca­sion.

“Peo­ple are al­ready reg­is­ter­ing for the din­ner, with guests from as far away as New Zealand al­ready con­firm­ing their at­ten­dance,” Ms Winfield said.

“There are also go­ing to be col­lege tours and ob­vi­ously many peo­ple rekin­dling con­nec­tions and friend­ships. Or­gan­iser Jenny Blake­ley is par­tic­u­larly ex­cited about the event con­sid­er­ing the re­sponse we’ve al­ready had.”

Peo­ple can reg­is­ter online at www.longy.com.au or through Eventbrite. Or­gan­is­ers are also look­ing for a com­mu­nity group to op­er­ate a bar for the din­ner.

Com­mu­nity groups can pro­vide ex­pres­sions of interest to run the bar to Claire Bibby on 5362 2222 or email [email protected] longy.com.au be­fore July 31.
