Vol. 3 Issue 7 – Happy National Dairy Month!     “National Dairy Month started out as National Milk Month in 1937 as a way to promote drinking milk. It was initially created to stabilize the dairy demand
when production was at a surplus, but has now developed into an annual tradition that celebrates the contributions the dairy industry has made to the world After the National Dairy Council stepped in to promote the cause, the name soon changed to “Dairy Month.”National Dairy Month is a great way to start the summer with nutrient-rich dairy foods. From calcium to potassium, dairy products like milk contain nine
essential nutrients which may help to better manage your weight, reduce your risk for high blood pressure, osteoporosis and certain cancers. Whether it’s protein to help build and repair the muscle tissue of active bodies or vitamin A to help maintain healthy skin, dairy products are a natural nutrient powerhouse. Those are just a few of the reasons that you should celebrate dairy not just in June, but all year long.”

Please visit Waltz Family Farm- they sell fresh cheese from local farms.

MEET THE MUSICIANS: Patrice Fisher and Carlos Valladares playing from noon until 1pm

Latin jazz harpist, Patrice Fisher favors the music of Brazil and Cuba, saying that, not only is the harp ‘comfortable’ harmonically with the music, but that she herself is drawn to the rhythmic complexities and syncopations: “that’s what makes you want to dance.” Patrice is a graduate of Tulane University and University of New Orleans. She lives in New Orleans, where she has been composing and performing since the 1980’s. She has also appeared at many international jazz festivals with her group, “Arpa,” in locations such as Germany, Brazil, Mexico and Guatemala. Patrice has 15 CDs of original music, the latest being “Resilience.” She has performed for more than 30 years at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Patrice regularly performs throughout the world as a guest artist with international jazz musicians.
