Ashley Crowned Queen

Lueckfeld to reign over 71st Azalea Festival
It was almost “winner take all” during the 2010 Azalea Festival Scholarship Pageant Saturday night at the Brookings Church of the Nazarene.

It was Princess Ashley Lueckfeld who was selected by a panel of judges to reign over the 2010 Azalea Festival themed “Beauty and the Beach” scheduled for Memorial Day weekend May 28-31. She was crowned by 2009 Queen Kayla Hamm.

Although it was the judges who chose Lueckfeld as queen, she was chosen Miss Congeniality by her princess peers and received the award for the most tickets sold.

The panel of judges – consisting of Debra Wright, Becky Ross, Barbara Lopez and Bill McMillan – did, however, choose Princess Kelly Aldrich to serve as first runner-up. Winning the talent competition was Princess Shalynn Doan.

The “Taste of Curry” shared by more than 100 participants at the storytelling session at the Redwood Theater or the culinary delights next door at MoVino Wine Bar,  or both, was extremely well received.

An e-mail from Janet Pretti, dean of the Curry County campus, noted that the unusual fundraising event “cleared almost $3,000, plus some promised additional pledges‚ to be added to the building fund for the new campus of Southwestern Oregon Community College on property near Lone Ranch Beach.

History came alive in the Redwood Theater as storytellers shared three different views of the “good old days” or “bad old days” of Curry County.
