Green County’s eighth annual tractor drive/ride will be held Sunday, Sept. 26. This family-friendly event provides people of all ages with an opportunity to see tractors up close while supporting the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin.

“So many times when a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or dementia comes, people don’t know where to turn, or they may feel lonely,” said Fritz Wenger, one of the event organizers. “This event not only raises awareness, but it also provides a chance for caregivers, family members and friends to talk with each other about their struggles.”
