GREENVILLE — Pride brings communities together, and groups of young people from around the area demonstrated their pride Monday at the Great Darke County Fair’s 30th Annual Cheerleading Competition. Ten teams showed up for their chance to compete for the grand prize.
Despite the heat index being in the 90s, the competitors were smiling and dancing their way to awards.
