June 22, 2016 – Dairy Princess – Julia Hauser and First Alternate – Sara Stein meet with students in the Greenwich K – 2 Building.  “Monday Julia and I went to 7 classes in Greenwich’s K-2 building and had an awesome time meeting so many kids who were so excited meeting the Dairy Princesses. We taught them about what cows eat, read a book, watched Discover Dairy’s awesome video about how  the dairy industry works (www.discoverdairy.com, check it out!), and had some stickers, pencils, and Go-Gurts for some fun treats as well.
Today I went to one of Greenwich’s 5th-grade class and did some of the similar things we did on Monday. As well as reminding them to have an active summer and drink lots of milk to refuel after their activities. It was awesome going back to my old schools and seeing some of my old teachers as well as meeting some of the new ones. Seeing the little girls light up when they saw 2 princesses in their class put a huge smile on my face and made me love the job as a dairy princess even more. I’m looking forward to traveling around to other schools and meet some more kids!”

June 15, 2016 – Dairy Princess – Julia Hauser at the Farm Credit East 100th Anniversary.  “Congratulations on 100 years of service to agriculture Farm Credit East! I was honored to be invited along with Greenwich FFA members to come help celebrate this accomplishment!”

This year National Ice Cream Day will be on July 17th.

Former President Reagan recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food enjoyed by over 90% of the population.
