The last two weeks have been
some of the busiest ever for Lisha
Mummert, the 1993-94 Adams
County Dairy Princess.
Early in the month, Lisha began
classes 'as a freshman student at
Western Maryland College, West
minster, Maryland. An accom
plished athlete, she had been prac
ticing with the college’s field
hockey team even before the term
Along with beginning her col
lege career, there have been
dozens of details to finalize as Lis
ha prepared to represent Adams
County at the Pennsylvania Dairy
Princess Pageant. There was her
scrapbook to put together and
clothes to select apd pack. Her
speech and promotional skit on
cheese got some final polishing,
using a cheery Mr. American
For her promotional skit presentation, Lisha devised a
Mr. American Cheese sidekick. To support his styrofoam
body on thin, dowel-rod legs, Lisha borrowed a pair of her
dad's old work shoes - and spray painted them a patriotic
shade of blue.

Lisha, 18, is the daughter of
Larry and Yvonne Mummert, East
Berlin. She received her county
princess crown June 25 at a coro
nation dinner hosted at Hickory
Bridge Farms restaurant.
“The first major event I
attended as a dairy princess was
the training seminar,” says Lisha.
“That gave me a feel for the
responsibilities of a dairy princess
and help on how to do the promo
tional activities.”
Prior to that Lisha did get some
hands-on experience working
with dairy promotion. Her older
sister, Lela, is program director
for the Middle Atlantic Milk
Marketing Association (MAM
MA). In early June, Lisha accom
panied Lela to MAMMA’s Every
Day Is A Sundae ice cream prom-
otion, held in Philadelphia near
the Liberty Bell.
“I helped to get set-up and to
get things ready, helped during the
promotion, and then helped to tear
down afterward,” said Lisha, of
the event that brought thousands
of Philadelphians to the historic
park to enjoy the dairy event. “It
gave me some exposure to the
work a dairy princess does. There
were thousands of office people
who came out on their work lunch
breaks and lots of children from
nursery and day eve centers.”
Lisha has also relied on former
Adams County dairy princess Jay
ne Hess for help and advice on
handling her new promotional
role. Jayne’s sister, Josi Hess,
coordinates and helps organize the
county’s dairy promotion events
for Lisha.
“Whenever we have a question,
we call the Hess family,” says an
appreciative Yvonne Mummert.
The training Lisha received at
the state dairy princess in July was
promptly put to use with her busy
schedule of promotional activities
since mid-summer. She has vis
