In keeping with the theme of “Honoring Our Agricultural Heritage,” the Future Farmers of America organization will be honored with the recognition as parade marshal.

“No one is more symbolic of the history of agriculture as well as the future of agriculture like the FFA and for that reason, all FFA Chapters and FFA members – past and present - will be honored with the Trenton and Grundy R-5 FFA Chapters serving in the official role as grand marshal,” said parade co-chairs Steve Maxey and Rick Klinginsmith.

FFA members will be visible throughout the parade in various capacities including individual floats representing the two local chapters and many area chapters expected to be represented in the parade as well. Local, district, state and national officers have been invited to ride in the parade along with officers of the Post Secondary Agriculture organization.

“We look forward to seeing hundreds of blue jackets in the parade” said the parade co-chairs “and we are delighted that they have accepted this honor with enthusiasm and pride”.

Parade officials said it was difficult to single out an individual, family or Ag related business for this honor and believe that recognizing the many men and women who have participated in FFA are perfect choices for a unified role of honor. Farmers of all ages should feel proud of this recognition and are invited to become a part of the parade by riding on floats, tractors, or specialty entries.

A new prize has even been added to the categories for judging to include the oldest farmer, man or woman, in the parade with recognition provided by Lauhoff Jewelry of Trenton and Chillicothe.

FFA Chapters wanting to join in the parade and compete for prize money are encouraged to contact parade co-chairs Maxey and Klinginsmith for more details and for entering the October 19th parade in Trenton.
