      Miller crowned Lee County fair Queen; Krebill honored for 42 years of volunteer service

      Nick Mueller/Daily Democrat Intern

      A new queen took the throne in the grandstand at the Lee County Fair Thursday night.

      Melissa Miller, a Wever resident and 2001 graduate of Fort Madison High School, was crowned in front of a large crowd in between sessions of the Bill Riley Talent Show. Tara Wellman, the reigning Lee County Fair Queen, presented Miller with the crown.

      Miller shared the honors Thursday night with the first and second runners-up, who were, respectively, Wendy Walljasper and Jessica Krogmeier. Bridget Dunlay was voted Miss Congeniality by her fellow candidates.

      Before Miller was crowned queen, a member of the Lee County Fair board was honored in the grandstands; but it was not just any member. After 42 years of service to the Lee County Community, and everyone who enjoys the Lee County Fair year in and year out, Dwight Krebill was given his due this Thursday night during the Grandstand events. The Lee County Fair Board, who feels wholeheartedly indebted to Krebill for all of his services over these past 42 years, presented the board veteran with a gold watch.

      Though a gold watch is certainly nothing to scoff at, the gift that the board really wanted to give to Krebill was not really a material one, but one of recognition, and a public outpouring of appreciation. When someone serves on the board of something like the Lee County Fair, the decisions and contributions that they make are enjoyed and felt by hundreds of
      people, literally everyone attending the fair, in some cases.

      That is what Thursday evening's ceremony was all about. Krebill has seen the Lee County Fair through the thick and the thin, along each and every step of the way, since 1958. That's no small achievement, and the board, along with the entire community as a whole, showed its thanks this Thursday night.

      Brenda Mohrfeld, current member of the Lee County Fair board, sang Krebill's praises at Thursday's ceremonies. "We just can't thank Dwight enough, because not only was he always pitching in, but he was also our resident historian. We can always go to him for wisdom. We just wanted, along with the public, to acknowledge just how hard he has worked and how
      selflessly he's contributed over all these years.

      Recently, Krebill has taken the time to both honor his loved ones, and to help out the area, as memorials for his relatives are being used for different reasons. One, for his wife Mildred, was designated for the Art Hall. Given that, the money was used to landscape all around the building. This project is still in progress. In addition, Krebill set up a scholarship in the memory of his son, Doug, which goes to benefit area ag students.

      In addition to all of the hoopla surrounding the crowning of Miller as queen and the honoring of Krebill, spectators were also presented with all sorts of amazingly fantabulous abilities, during the Bill Riley Talent Show. Acts of all sorts were presented, from tap-style dancing, to solo singing. The show was divided into two categories, one for "sprouts" or
      youngsters, and a senior division. All of the acts performed were terrifitastic.
