The Perry Progressive Council was created in March 1947 by farmers of the southeast area of Wood County as a local affiliate of the Ohio Farm Bureau. The council was created for the purpose of a Farm Bureau Advisory Council in order to make improvements and adjustments to the living and working of farmers in the area. The council held a meeting once a month and also took part in holiday festivities and summer picnics together. The Perry Progressive Council would meet to discuss contemporary local farming issues and also to take time to meet up with one another for some games and refreshments.
