GREENVILLE—The Darke County Board of Commissioners signed a proclamation on Thursday afternoon proclaiming Feb. 18-25 as National FFA Week in Darke County.

In attendance were FFA representatives from six different chapters within Darke County. The week-long tradition began in 1947, when the National Board of Directors designated the week of George Washington’s birthday as National FFA Week in recognition of his legacy as an agriculturist and farmer.

National FFA Week is a time for local chapters to highlight their programs and showcase their success and passion for agriculture.

The Darke County Board of Commissioners hold regular session every Tuesday and Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at 520 South Broadway, Greenville, Ohio 45331. For more information contact the commissioner’s office at 937-547-7370.
