Clarion-Venango boundary
Each of die seven semi
finalists was asked to
respond to a hypothetical
situation where they could
enter a “character trading
post” and choose some
virtue to take for free while
leaving another less
desirable one behind in
The new princess has
chosen “patience” as the one'
characteristic she needs to
gain more of, while turning
in what she self-critically
labels “short temper.”
While Cindy will make
dozens of appearances in an
intense year of dairy product
promotion aimed at all
levels of the consuming
public, she especially would
like to gear some of her
efforts toward her peers.
“Teenagers often think
they’re too old for milk,” she
reflected during a pause in
the almost endless clicking
of cameras and popping of
flashbulbs that followed her
crowning as the new first
lady of the state’s giant v
daily industry. “Andlhopel
can live up to the job done by
the girls that have gone
ahead of me.”
First runner-up Yvonne
King of Chester County is the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph King of Cochranville.
Yvonne was one of four
contestants selected to give
her promotional presen
tation during the pageant.
Her amusing and well-done
muppet-type puppet
presentation was geared
toward elementary school
age children.
An office administration
major at Goldey Beacom
College in Wilmington,
Delaware, Yvonne is 20 and
a graduate of Octorara Area
High School, where she was
an honor society member
and active in band and
In answer to the
hypothetical question on
changing character trails,
Yvonne shared a critique
similar to Cindy Neely. She
said she would draw from
the store of patience and
leave behind “my stub
Lisa McMillen, the second
runner up, is 18 and the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Dean McMillen of Loysville
Rl. A 1980 graduate of West
Perry High, Lisa is majoring
in parks and recreation at
the Mont Alto Campus of
Penn State University.
A former Perry County 4-
H queen, Lisa is active in
various club programs,
serves as a civil defense
volunteer, and participates
in numerous church and
community groups. An
swering the character
trading question, Lisa told
the audience she’d take a
“deep Christian faith’’ and
leave behind “my lack of
Also one of the foul
presentation winners, Lisa
set up a supermarket
backdrop and held a dairy
onented conversation with
tuned, pie-taped replies,
from a small mouse in the
Swiss cheese. She was also
one of the two outstanding
scrapbook winners.
One of the most prized
awards of the contest, the
Miss Congeniality selection
chosen by voting of the girls
themselves, went to Tina
Neufeld of York County.
Tina is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Albert Neufeld,
York R 4,. and a freshman

presentations were won by
Renee Swick of Beaver-
Lawrence and Jayne Gahres
of the SUN area. Mercer
County’s Kathryn Canon
received honorable mention
in the scrapbook judging.
Eileen Shull, the outgoing
princess, brought tears to
the eyes of many in the
audience with her farewell
message. She thanked the
promotional staffers and
volunteers behind the
princess program, and
added a special message for
her family.
“Because they loved me, I
had the chance to do this.
People say I’ve changed in
this year. I thank everyone,
and I thank Jesus Christ,”

the “Cheese Adds A Slice of
Life” theme.
Pageant-goers also got a
look at what dairy ad
vertisers hope will be their
version of the “Good
Housekeeping Seal of Ap
proval,” a consumer
recognized standard of
product integrity.
The “Real Seal” is a
stylized drop of milk,
designed by - advertising
creators to be an easily
recognized symbol for use on
only genuine dairy products.
Members of the audience
were asked to help spread
the idea of the “Real Seal”,
and each person received an
“I’m For Real” button with
the new logo as a table favor.
