Brisbin crowned 2004 fair queen  Send a link to a friend

[AUG. 4, 2004]  The opening day of the Logan County Fair saw daytime temperatures and humidity drive the heat index into heat advisory warnings on Tuesday. But by evening the atmosphere had cooled enough to make it comfortable for queen competition.

As usual a large crowd came out to watch the opening main event. However, this year the crowd was watching from the open air of a brand new grandstand. The free-flowing air helped cool the spectators.

Friends and families watched as the girls consistently put forth their best poise in the various rounds, which included a gown competition and a question-and-answer time. Then the judges made the difficult decision of which girl to bestow with the honor and crown.

Proud Fair Sponsor

An 18-year-old Lincolnite, Melissa Brisbin, was chosen. The tall, light-brown-haired beauty is the daughter of Steve and Cheri Brisbin. A graduate of New Wine Christian School, Brisbin is currently attending Heartland Community College. She has also done studies at Oral Roberts University.

The new queen will serve as hostess and present awards for the rest of the fair time.

Also in attendance at the competition were about 10 past fair queens, dating back to 1939.
