2022 June Dairy Days West Salem Button – Ava Jambois

West Salem student Ava Jambois created this year’s button.  Her design is of a cow with heart-shaped glasses, holding two ice cream cones.

“I just thought it would be a fun, kind of silly design. Because it’s kind of goofy looking and I thought it would be fun to draw,” explains Jambois.

The pandemic had forced festival organizers to make some changes, but this year some fan favorites will be back.

“We’ll have pork sandwiches again. The ice cream tent will be open with scooped ice cream this year, so it’s back to normal, ” says past president Jeanne Bahr.

June Dairy Days is held at Village Park. The parade is at noon Saturday. There’s a car show on Sunday
