Dairy Princess Kicks Off National Dairy Month With Dairy Basket For Newborn At WCA

WCA Hospital

Jamestown, New York (Wednesday, June 9, 2010)—(photo release) In recognition of National Dairy Month in June, Chautauqua County Dairy Princess, Emily Minor, kicked off the event by presenting a basket of dairy products and baby items to newborn baby boy, Cadillak Jiovanni Kellom, the first baby born in June at WCA Hospital. 

The dairy basket reminds new mothers and their families to consume proper servings of low-fat milk, cheese and yogurt every day.

“My message is simple,” said Emily Minor.  “Take your three-a-day – the number of dairy servings needed each day and the number of weeks experts say it takes to develop a healthy dairy habit.”

The Chautauqua County Dairy Princess, Emily Minor, has participated in the Mayville parade on July fourth, and a parade in Frewsburg. She attended the Chautauqua County fair and had a different sample for fair goers each day. She also had the honor of attending the State Fair in Syracuse. The princess has visited several area schools, including Sherman and a Southwestern kindergarten class.

“I've been very busy this year and I've had a lot of fun,” she said. Minor stated that she also did a radio spot. She shared with coop members that Domino's will make a specialty pizza that will use 40 percent more cheese, amounting to ten million pounds annually of cheese consumption. Minor said that a partnership with Tops Markets has been created; adding 20 single serve coolers in stores near registers and in other areas of their stores.

Minor, a senior at Frewsburg Central High School, will attend Morrisville State College in the fall.
