The Coffee County Commission proclaimed Nov. 22-28 as Farm City Week. Commission Chairman Dean Smith joined Coffee County 4-H Agent Gavin Mauldin and Coffee County Farm-City Committee Chairwoman Cindy Kinney to read the proclamation.

“For over 60 years during Thanksgiving Week, the American people have observed National Farm City Week, which expresses gratitude for the bounty with which God has blessed our land and to recognize the achievements of the farmers, rural townspeople, and city residents who make our nation’s agriculture production and distribution system so successful,” Smith read. “Truly, this cooperation between rural and city dwellers for mutual benefit helps ensure our county’s wellbeing. America’s farmers have provided food and fiber to sustain our people for decade after decade of progress.”
