Journal recommends Dryden Dairy Day

The Ithaca Journal builds on yesterday's write-up about Dairy Day with an editorial today encouraging people to attend tomorrow's festivities:

Dairy Day is, as the name says, a celebration of the deep agricultural roots of this region. And it is more than that. It is the antidote to insulting mass media images of agricultural life in our small towns. For two decades, Dairy Day has been a reminder of the best in a small-town American lifestyle that a big-city-obsessed nation too quickly forgets and too often mocks.

For that reason, as well as the parade and the ice cream, Dryden Dairy Day should be a stop on everyone's weekend agenda.
