Register for Lead the Way Tractor Cruise

Ride and Live United on Saturday, September 29th, 2012. Anyone with a tractor is invited to ride in the Darke County United Way Tractor Cruise, and all of the community is invited to come downtown Greenville to watch the tractors and enjoy shopping locally. This event is being held in conjunction with Days of Harvest in Downtown Greenville, the Gourd Show at the Fairgrounds, and Prairie Days at Shawnee Prairie, so spend the entire weekend in Greenville! The Tractor Cruise will be parading through town at 10 am, beginning at the Fairgrounds, traveling from Martz Street down Fair Street to Washington, from Washington onto Broadway, around the traffic circle, onto Main Street, and traveling back to the fairgrounds via Chestnut St/Fort Jefferson Ave.

This is an exciting event bringing the heart of Darke County, agriculture, into the United Way’s event to help those in need, our seniors, our youth, and those seeking self-sufficiency. Last year we had forty tractors involved and would love to have at least fifty this year. Please call the United Way office at 937-547-1272 or print forms at and mail them to the United Way office. Registration is $15 and these costs include a t-shirt and pizza lunch from Marco’s. We encourage all riders to collect pledges for the United Way. There will be prizes for the largest amount of pledges collected. Please register today. We would like to have registrations turned in a week before the event. Pledges can be turned in to the United Way office on Friday, September 28th or the morning of the ride. If you are riding please meet at the fairgrounds at 8am on Sept. 29th for registration.

We are so pleased to bring Darke County this event together with our amazing sponsors including: Farmers State Bank, Andersons Ethanol LLC, Medicine and More, Farm Power of the Past, Cornerstone Construction, SISCO – Superior Implement & Supply Co, and Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln Mercury. If your business would like to help sponsor this event, please call the United Way office. Bring the kids and your families out and see the tractors cruise through downtown Greenville on Saturday, September 29th at 10 am.
