So, what do the Susquehanna County Dairy Promoters and 4-Hers do in our county? The Susquehanna County Dairy Promotion Team allows young girls with a love for the dairy industry to have the ability to share their passion. The girls attend different events (and host their own events) where they get to serve dairy products, present speeches, and share their love of the dairy industry with others. The program teaches the girls about the benefits of dairy, gives them the opportunity to practice and become comfortable with public speaking, and get an inside look at the world within the dairy industry. In the 4-H program, youth are involved in learning a variety of skill-sets including learning about and exhibiting dairy animals, raising livestock, sewing, cooking, outdoor sports, and many more programs. 4-H introduces many different skills through its programs, and many children learn to love and excel in a variety of fields due to this program.
Susquehanna County Dairy Promotion and 4-H work closely together on a variety of events and strive to keep the youth involved in our community. For more information, dinner tickets or wishing to donate a pie or cake for the auction please contact Debbie Crisman (Kiwanis), Evie Goff (Susquehanna County Dairy Promotion), or SarahRae Sisson (4-H).

Scheduled to take place on Thursday, October 7th from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at the Cooperage Project, Honesdale, the event will be held outdoors with adjustments such as fewer vendors and safely-served refreshments.
"The Mingle has always been a very popular way to recognize our nurse midwives," stated Frederick Jackson, executive director, Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers. "We wanted to bring the event back but felt some modifications were necessary."
