The Ohio Dairy Producers (ODP) will begin operating a dairy stand in the Food Pavilion during the 2004 Ohio State Fair that runs from August 4th through the 15th. The American Dairy Association and Dairy Council Mid East (ADA & DC Mid East), which has operated both the Food Pavilion stand as well as the Dairy Products Building in the past, has provided this opportunity to the ODP. "This is just one way that we can show our support for the ODP", said Scott Higgins, ADA & DC Mid East's General Manager. "The operation of two stands was a problem at times and having ODP run the smaller stand will enable them to offer some new and cutting edge products."

The menu plans are not complete, but we are looking to serve all the flavored milk products that have been offered in the past as well as soft serve ice cream cones, sundaes, and hopefully four flavors of "Razzles"�. (similar to McDonald's McFlurries).

To make the most of the opportunity and to help assure its success, the ODP board has agreed to solicit volunteers to operate the stand. If you or your group are interested in working in the stand, please contact Tim Demland at 419-523-6294 so we can get you scheduled. The ODP will reimburse fair admission fees, and volunteers will receive a small gift of appreciation.
