Register for Lead the Way Tractor Cruise Presented by Jordan Insurance Agency

Live United and Ride United on Saturday, September 23, 2017 for the 12th Annual Lead the Way Tractor Cruise presented by Jordan Insurance Agency.

Tractor Driver Melvin Johnson was the lead tractor in the 2016 Tractor Cruise
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. The Darke County United Way is celebrating its 70th anniversary of serving Darke County. We would love to have at least 70 tractors in this year’s parade. Please call the United Way office at 547-1272 to register or go online to 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.

The Lead the Way Tractor Cruise would not be possible without the support of our amazing sponsors which include Jordan Insurance Agency; Anderson Ethanol, LLC; Cooper Farms; Cornerstone Construction; Crop Production Services; Dave Knapp Ford Lincoln; Farm Power of the Past; Keller Grain & Feed; Medicine & More; Rebsco, Inc.; Second National Bank; SISCO – Superior Implement & Supply Co.; and The Whistle Stop Bar & Grill. We still have room for additional sponsors. Sponsorships are $200 and include the business logo on the back of the shirt and a tractor registration.
