The following is an excerpt from a blog posted by blogger and Proud to Dairy member Nancy Grossi.



The North Bay Dairy Women was established in 1965 and is a local organization, with the purpose behind it being to educate consumers about dairy and dairy farms and to promote the dairy industry.

This group remains busy year round: some of the activities include participating in events such as Ag Day in surrounding towns, volunteering time at the county fairs, sponsoring scholarships to students pursuing agriculture education, and co-sponsoring (along with the California Milk Advisory Board) the District 3 Dairy Princess Contest.

On December 7, my daughter Paige and I met my mother-in-law, Annette; my sister-in-law, Lesha; and her daughter, Leila, at Mr. Magoos Restaurant in Petaluma, California, to attend the North Bay Dairy Women's annual Christmas luncheon. A group of 40 plus women, representing multiple generations of dairy women and families were in attendance. PD
