Register for Lead the Way Tractor Cruise

Live United and Ride United on Saturday, September 26, 2015 for the 10th Annual Lead the Way Tractor Cruise presented by Koenig Equipment. This year’s event is in memory of Joe Bevins and Lloyd Rogers. They both thoroughly enjoyed this event and will be greatly missed in this year’s line-up.

ANYONE with a tractor is invited to ride in the Darke County United Way Tractor Cruise, and the community is invited to come out to watch the tractors and enjoy shopping locally. This event is being held in conjunction with Days of Harvest in Downtown Greenville and Prairie Days at Shawnee Prairie, so spend the entire weekend in Greenville! The Tractor Cruise will be parading through town at 10:00 am, beginning at the Fairgrounds, traveling 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. We would like to give special thanks to the City of Greenville, Greenville Police Department, and the Darke County Agricultural Society for help with this event.

The Tractor Cruise embodies the heart of Darke County, agriculture, and brings it front and center into the United Way’s event to help those in need. Last year, there were nearly forty tractors in the parade and we would love to have at least fifty this year. Please call the United Way office at 547-1272 to register. Registration is $15 and includes lunch and a Tractor Cruise t-shirt. All proceeds support the Darke County United Way’s local programs to strengthen education, health and stability. 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 a few days before the event. Pledges can be turned in to the United Way office on Friday, September 18th or the morning of the ride. If you are riding please meet at the fairgrounds at 8:00 am on Saturday, September 26th.

The Lead the Way Tractor Cruise would not be possible without the support of our amazing sponsors which include Koenig Equipment, Cornerstone Construction, Crop Production Services, Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln, Farm Power of the Past, Keller Grain & Feed, Medicine & More, Second National Bank, and SISCO – Superior Implement & Supply Co.

For more information, to register a tractor, or to sponsor this event, please contact the United Way office at 547-1272 or via email at We hope to see you in downtown Greenville on Saturday, September 26th for our 10th Annual event.
