The Lewis County Dairy Princess Program has been working hard since the
end of April in efforts to promote the dairy industry. Two ways in particular that
the program has succeeded in this, is their Refuel With Chocolate Milk events
and Fuel Up to Play 60 events. The concept of these events, is for sports
teams and students all over Lewis County to acknowledge the benefits of dairy
products after an intense workout.
For the Refuel With Chocolate Milk events, the Lewis County Dairy Princess
and her court will hand out refreshing chocolate milk to players after a sports
practice or game. They will then educate the players, by letting them know that
chocolate milk is a great source of protein and carbohydrates; it is perfect for
replenishing tired muscles. It is important to not only show support to our active
youth, but our local dairy farmers as well, so this event is a great combination
of both. Since the end of April, the Lewis County Dairy Princess Program has
handed out over 1,400 bottles of chocolate milk and refueled around forty
different sports teams in Lewis County.
Fuel up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program
launched by the National Dairy Council and the NFL, in collaboration with the
U.S. Department of Agriculture. This program helps to encourage today’s youth
to lead healthier lives. Port Leyden Elementary is currently the only school in
Lewis County to become a “Touchdown School” with the Fuel Up to Play 60
Program. In 2014, South Lewis High School became a “Touchdown School”
with past Dairy Princess, Gabby Wormuth (Domagala).
During the event with Port Leyden Elementary, The Lewis County Dairy
Princess, Reegan Domagala and Dairy Ambassadors, Jaycee Hirm, Jayda
Devines and Aubree Domagala, had an intense workout for 60 minutes with the
fourth grade students. After, they all replenished their muscles with chocolate
milk. This event is great for kids to work hard and engage in a healthy lifestyle
all in one.
If you would like to have your sports team or school be a part of these
wonderful opportunities and show your support to local dairy farmers, contact
