Serving The Communities Of The Pulaski / Sandy Creek Areas! 25 0 Volume 1 Number 11 Tuesday, May 28,1985 Three Sections - 38 Pages Princess 'Gets Her Wish' Three Vie For Dairy Princess Title By Brenda Potter Over one hundred people were on hand at the American Legion Hall in Pulaski on the evening of May 18, to witness the crowning of the new Oswego County Dairy Princess, Cheryl Growe. Miss Growe's „ competition included local resident, Chris Fowler, who resides at her family's farm in Sandy Creek, and Lisa McMillen of Hannibal. Miss Growe successfully fielded several questions concerning dairy promotion, posed to her by master of ceremonies, Joel Hastings, of the Holstein-Friesian World. She also presented a demonstration of how she, if crowned, would promote dairy products to school children. The crowning took place after a review of the last year by 1984-85 princess, Erin J&ojftbins, who also was the New York. Stafe Second Alternate dairy. princess. Miss Robbins commented that she had made presentations to \over 1100 students in 47 schools,'' and that \the experience was good for her\ in many ways. In keeping with the dairy foods promotion theme of thf banquet, guest speaker, Elavil Dodge, committee member ^f trie National Dairy Promotion Board, gave an update on progress in that area. He also urged members to vote on the Nation Promotion Act this summer. Two Dairy of Distinction Awards, were made that evening, one to Franklyn and Ruth Rudd, and another to Sam and Geraldine DeMassey. As dairy princess, Cheryl will conduct demonstrations in supermarkets and schools, appear in parades and at fairs, and compete in the New York State Dairy princess competition in August, representing the dairy farmers of Oswego County. The fifteen-year-old should have little trouble keeping up with the hectic pace of her new title, as she has found time in the past to participate in activities such as 4- H, band (both marching and concert), Drama Club, and American Field Service, as well as help out on her family's 60-head -dmryfarm. Miss Growe said that her major concern as <lairy princess will be \to educate the consumer on the role of the farmer, and to make them more aware of the farmer's problems.\ She is excited about the year ahead, and says that \I've always wanted to be a dairy princess.\ She seems to have gotten her wish.

Weigal received 242 votes for the five-year term. Pulaski voters also approved a budget of $6,511,754, which will largely go towards renovations to both the high school and the elementary school. Superintendent Warren Leib said that the projected tax increase will be only $1.13 per $1000 assessed value, and that it very well may be less, as the renovations are paid for through state aid, investments, and a planned balance.
