New Liskeard agricultural school students reunite this weekend
Usually reunions happen when a school is still open, but that’s not the case for a college in the Temiskaming Shores area.
The New Liskeard College of Agricultural Technology is having its 20th anniversary reunion this weekend — it's been 20 years since the school closed.
The college shut its doors in 1994 after provincial funding was cut.
Jean-Denis Methot, who taught at the college for five years, said this weekend's reunion is not a bitter jab at the closure of the college.
"This is about reminiscing and has nothing to do with protest,” he said.
“It's about the good memories that were there and renewing friendships."
The old college has since been converted into a research station for beef and horticulture.
Events this weekend include a tour of that station and a group brunch.
