LCC Hosting Second Annual Ag/Equine Reunion


(Lamar, Colorado; September 18, 2017) Lamar Community College is busy making final preparations to host its second reunion for former Agriculture and Horse Training & Management students and those who participated in Rodeo, Livestock Judging, and/or Saddle & Sirloin Club while attending Lamar Community College (Lamar Junior College), regardless of graduation status.  Otherwise known as the Old Cowboys Reunion, activities are scheduled for September 29 – October 1, 2017 to coincide with the upcoming LCC Antelope Stampede Rodeo. Participants are encouraged to attend all the events LCC has planned for the weekend, including those open to the general public.

“We’re excited to welcome our Ag and Equine alums back to Lamar and encourage those still in the area to quickly register for the event,” commented Anne-Marie Crampton, executive director of the LCC Foundation. “This is a labor of love for the reunion committee and me. And it will be a busy weekend with multiple events occurring.  I hope that we get more local participants to be part of it again.  This year, we are beginning to draw more Horse Training alums back as well.”

A $75.00 registration fee per person covers event costs and entrance into multiple events noted with an asterisk.
