DC Farm Bureau supports PACE

GREENVILLE – The Darke County Farm Bureau at its June board meeting voted to make a $1,000 contribution to the Progressive Agriculture Convention and Education Center, also known as the PACE Center.

The PACE Center is an exhibition and training center serving the community and agricultural students throughout western Ohio.  The PACE Center will include an education center with classrooms, laboratories and meeting space for the Wright State University Lake Campus Agriculture and Food Science programs.  In addition to the education center, an attached arena provides the opportunity for livestock shows, conventions, special events and trade shows to be hosted at the new venue.“The Farm Bureau’s donation shows their commitment to the advancement of agricultural education among our local students and community in western Ohio,” says Greg McGlinch, Wright State University Agriculture Program Coordinator.

The Wright State University Agriculture and Food Science program and the Mercer County Agriculture Society appreciates Darke County Farm Bureau’s support for the PACE Center.  If you are interested in more details pertaining to the PACE Center please feel free to email Greg McGlinch at greg.mcglinch@wright.edu or Cara Muhlenkamp at cmuhlenkamp@mercercountyohiofair.com.
