JAS salutes The Gleaner
THE EDITOR, Sir: Like the Jamaica Agricultural Society (JAS), The Gleaner Company is an institution deeply rooted in the Jamaican landscape. While the JAS next year celebrates 120 years of contribution to the development of Jamaica, particularly in the rural citizenry and our farmers, this year, The Gleaner Company celebrates its 180th anniversary.
The JAS and the 220,000 farmers in Jamaica take this opportunity to salute The Gleaner Company for achieving this momentous milestone. Over the years, the JAS has collaborated with The Gleaner on a number of projects in celebrating agriculture, namely, the Denbigh Agricultural, Industrial and Food Show, parish shows, Farmers Month, and the Eat Jamaica campaign and the general promotion of agriculture and rural development.
Congratulations, Gleaner Company, and a salute from the farmers across the length and breadth of Jamaica.
