As the summer draws to an end, we reflect back on all of the events we attended this past summer.

As the summer draws to an end, we reflect back on all of the events we attended this past summer.

Our summer season began with a float in the Pride and Patriotism Parade in Waymart. Princess Jackie Chyle attended the Tractor Parade in Callicoon, N.Y.

The court had floats in both the Pleasant Mount and Hawley July Fourth parades, Newfoundland Parade, Lake Ariel Fireman's Parade and the Lakewood Parade.

Selling T-shirts, ice cream bars and walking tacos while promoting the dairy industry was the goal of the Honesdale Sidewalk Sale Days rounding out the month of July.

In August, the court was busy at the Wayne County Fair. Everyone took turned handing out ribbons during the Dairy Open and 4-H Shows. We also sold T-shirts and assisted Wayne County 4-H by scooping up ice cream in the ice cream booth. Also in August was the District Dairy Show where we handed out ribbons and sold T- shirts.

Many promotions were also done in local daycare centers, ice cream shops and vacation Bible schools that had a farm theme. Princess Jackie also attended the Dairy Princess Seminar to prepare for the upcoming pageant on Sept. 22 in Camp Hill.

How do court members keep up with such a busy promotion schedule? We fuel up with dairy products and you can too! By incorporating dairy into three main meals and snacks, you can easily get three servings each day.

The calcium in dairy products will help build strong bones and healthy teeth while giving you the energy you need to keep moving.

Check out the dairy case at your local store for a large variety of tasty products. If you are looking for more information check out these website: .

Next month we will be taking a look at October is Cheese Month, giving you a pageant update from Princess Jackie and information about our annual holiday fundraiser.
