    On The Farm With Cambria
County’s Dairy Princess
(Continued from Page B 12)
Her favorite aspect of the program
is the school promotions espe
cially those which deal with pre
school age children. Marie enjoys
these young children because they
are so “energetic.” She encourages
the use of dairy products with the
children by activities such as
“shaking and making" instant pud
ding in a jar.
Marie takes her duties as Dairy
Princess quite seriously “to
promote dairy products and the
dairy industry an 1 to make people
more aware of their importance.”
Marie attended the National Hol
stein Convention in Pittsburgh in
June, and more recently. Ag Prog
ress Days at Rock Springs. In both
cases she was there in her capacity

as a promoter of the dairy industry.
This articulate young lady has also
spoken to both farm and non-farm
groups, as well as school groups.
She was also a featured speaker at
the Cambria County 4-H Achieve
ment night
More recently, in taking her
message to a more urban audience,
Marie was in attendance at the All-
American Amateur Baseball Asso
ciation (AAABA) championship
game at the Point Stadium in
Johnstown. The Johnstown entry,
sponsored by Sani-Dairy, had
thrilled the hometown fans by
reaching the final game, and was
pitted against a team from New
Orleans. Johnstown lost the game
but Marie was excited by the
opportunity. She walked through
the crowd with a “cow,” (person
dressed like a cow) passing out
stickers, recipes, and coloring
books. This one-on-one contact on
the local level is an integral part of
the Dairy Princess program.
The Cambria County Fair was
the next stop on Marie’s agenda.
Besides attending in an official
capacity as Dairy Princess she also
showed “Barr Ridge Leadman
Frankiea three year old dry cow.
The Liebs have' a strong sense of
“family” which is quite evident in
Marie’s outlook on life. Marie
thoroughly enjoys farm life. She
feels that “it keeps the family
attached...everyone must work
together to keep things going.”
Because the extended family is
close, Marie takes pride in the fact
that she knows all of her aunts and
uncles and 41 cousins. In this fast
paced world, it is refreshing to note
that this young lady has her priori
ties in order!
