EAST AMWELL TWP. – Ice cream as well cookies and milk will be given away  - for free - at the Hunterdon County 4-H and Agricultural Fair.

The county Dairy Princess, Amanda Wengryn and Alternate Princess Skylar Delbeni, both of Ringoes, will be at the fair to promote milk and milk products. Among their tasks will be the enjoyable job of giving away ice cream sundaes.

And on Thursday, Aug. 25, milk and cookies will be distributed, starting 2 p.m. and while supplies last, by students in the FFA (formerly Future Farmers of America) at nearby South Hunterdon High School. Their vocational agriculture teacher and FFA chapter advisor, Tiffany Morey, came up with the idea. The Dairy Princess and her court will serve free ice cream sundaes next Friday, Aug. 26, starting at 2 p.m.
