Celebrate June Dairy Month
Dairy month

On Friday, May 27th, County Mayor Tim Stribling signed a proclamation to officially designate June as Dairy Month in DeKalb County.  Kylynn Smullen, the 4-H June Dairy Month chairperson, along with Jacklyn Kleparek, 4-H Ambassador, witnessed the signing. The event was even celebrated with a milkshake.  The proclamation reads:

WHEREAS dairy farmers have contributed to the development and well-being of DeKalb County since the earliest formation of DeKalb County.

WHEREAS, the dairy industry is a major industry in Tennessee, a significant contribution to the economy.

WHEREAS, milk and dairy foods provide health benefits and valuable nutrients; and

WHEREAS, real milk and dairy foods are superiors to their imitations in quality, values, and taste; and

WHEREAS, the 85th celebration of June Dairy Month, highlighting the dairy industry, will occur during 2022;

Now, therefore, be it resolved by Tim Stribling, mayor of DeKalb County, that June 2022 is designated to the celebration of June Dairy Month, and I call upon all the government agencies and the people of DeKalb County in order to observe the month with appropriate programs and activities.

DeKalb County 4-H has many activities planned for the month. There will be contests, farm tours, trivia, recipes, and more, as well as a dairy food drive.  Be sure to “Like” DeKalb 4-H June Dairy Month on Facebook to follow along.  You may also call 615-597-4945 for more information.
