The Peoria County Farm Bureau is celebrating its 100th year of service in Illinois, as the agricultural organization has been helping people in the region for more than a century, according to the Peoria Journal Star.
The news source reported that the organization will be holding an event to celebrate hitting the century mark, and the many people who have used farm equipment in the region will be treated to several shows.
"We'll have a tractor drive, farm animals, a pedal tractor course for the children and a number of exhibits celebrating a century of service," bureau manager Patrick Kirchhofer told the news source.
The Illinois farm in 1912 may not resemble the modern equivalent, but both operations were likely to feature at least one piece of John Deere farm equipment. This type of historical view will be provided at the event.
"We wanted to do something big for the farm bureau but also to educate the community on the impact of agriculture over the years," one of the organizers told the Journal Star.
The organization's website highlighted the event and features a history of the farm bureau.
