Megan Mellinger (right) is the 2017 West Lampeter Fair Queen. Greta Bennett (left) is the alternate/runner-up.
Megan Mellinger was crowned queen of the 93rd annual fair. She and the rest of the candidates began the fair queen festivities with a parade from the High School to the fairgrounds. Each candidate rode in a convertible and was accompanied by her escort members of her nominating club.
The 11 candidates took the stage, introduced themselves, and answered questions before the field narrowed to the final five: Megan, Greta, Cheyanne Waller, Emily Bishop, and Mackenzie Krebs. After another round of questions, the 2016 Fair Queen and alternate - Mackenna Kimmel and Liana Sauve - addressed the crowd while the judges deliberated. Soon emcee (and school board president) Melissa Herr announced the 2017 winner and runner-up. The crowd cheered as Miss Kimmel crowned Miss Mellinger this year's queen.
Congratulations to the 11 Fair Queen candidates for having the courage to answer impromptu questions in front of a crowd, the poise to do it well, and the wherewithal to withstand the entire event on what felt like a humid summer night. We are proud to have each you represent L-S at the West Lampeter Fair.
