                Proclamation 8205 of November 16, 2007

                
National Farm-City Week, 2007

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Our Nation's agricultural industry contributes greatly 
                to the strength of our economy. During National Farm-
                City Week, we honor the hard work and dedication of 
                America's farmers and ranchers and we highlight the 
                important urban and rural partnerships that help keep 
                our country strong and prosperous.

                America's farmers and ranchers embody an important part 
                of our national heritage. As stewards of our land, our 
                farmers and ranchers protect our soil, water, and 
                wildlife habitat. With hard work, discipline, and 
                ingenuity, they produce a safe and healthy food supply. 
                Farmers and ranchers work closely with processors, 
                transporters, and retailers, moving agricultural 
                products from the farm to the homes of Americans and 
                people around the world. My Administration is working 
                to open new markets for American farm products and to 
                encourage free and fair trade. By expanding 
                opportunities for American farmers and ranchers, we can 
                help keep our economy strong and growing.

                As we celebrate Farm-City Week, we recognize the many 
                contributions of America's farmers and ranchers and all 
                those who work to strengthen the ties between our rural 
                and urban communities. Our Nation is blessed by those 
                who grow, harvest, and deliver these products, and we 
                honor their dedication to feeding our country and the 
                world.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim November 16 through 
                November 22, 2007, as National Farm-City Week. I 
                encourage all Americans to recognize the many 
                accomplishments of our farmers and ranchers, and all 
                those who contribute to the strength of America's 
                agricultural industry.
