Tennessee River Ag Expo
September 18 - 21, 2013
We invite you to come be a part of the Tennessee River Agriculture Exposition, at the Decatur County Fairgrounds.
Different events will be held throughout the week offering a variety of activities that will provide something of interest to everyone. One goal of TRAE is to bring back an event that promotes our Decatur County and surrounding area agriculture industry and spotlights our rural heritage.
Continuing to educate our population as to the importance of our largest industry, agriculture, is as important today as it has ever been. The industry produces agricultural products and timber that are safe and dependable at the same time conserving our nation's natural resources.
Visitors to TRAE will not only be able to learn about current agricultural products, but will also be able to revisit our rural heritage through an antique tractor exhibit and by seeing a variety of farm and home historical pieces displayed throughout the fairgrounds.
Special entertainment events will be held nightly for your enjoyment.
Remember that TRAE has a free gate and nightly food will be prepared by our own Tennessee River Cookers. Make plans to visit with us as many nights as possible.
The Board of Directors of the Tennessee River Agriculture Exposition are pleased to follow the tradition set forth in 2011 by dedicating this year's TRAE to a special person who lived his life in our community giving unselfishly to promote the agriculture industry.
While Mr. Danny Graves is no longer with us, his legacy lives on as evidenced by his contributions to numerous causes and programs. Many of his donations will never be known by the majority of our citizens, but that would be alright with Danny.
The Junior Livestock Sponsors Buyer Auction will be held on September 17th of this year. It is indisputable that Danny contributed more to the agriculture youth of Decatur County in this program than any other individual or group.
When asked about contributing to a cause, Danny would give and would usually follow with "maybe this will help out a little."
We miss Danny and are pleased to dedicate the 2013 TRAE to Danny, his wife Glenda, and his two children Jon and Courtney.
