June is a month filled with a flurry of activity, especially if you are Warren County’s Dairy Month chairman. Courtney Few has conducted month-long activities all across the county, trying to educate the community about the importance of dairy products. She has visited area nursing homes, day cares, businesses, almost any place where she could visit with folks and get the message across. She and her volunteers have served buckets of ice cream, played games and answered questions about the dairy industry. Few and Dairy Princess Haile Adams served hundreds of banana splits to customers during the Standard’s annual Banana Day event. Few is the 16-year-old daughter of Debbie and Gary Few and is a junior at Warren County High School.
“This month has been filled with lots of fun experiences, as well as many hands-on opportunities to speak to the county about the importance of dairy in the diet. I have had a wonderful time serving as the June Dairy Month chairperson, and I’m so thankful for everyone who helped make this experience go so smoothly,” said Few.
