Lucy and Gordon Melms were crowned the 2014 king and queen at DeKalb Area Retirement Center-Oak Crest.

DeKALB – Gordon and Lucy Melms were crowned the Oak Crest King and Queen at DeKalb Area Retirement Center-Oak Crest's spring dance.

Sycamore High School Key Club and Interact Club turned the Vista Room at Oak Crest into an enchanted garden for the event. Students presented the residents with flowers as they arrived at the dance, served them cookies and punch throughout the evening and danced with many of the residents who were anxious to get on the dance floor. The dance has been an annual service project for the two clubs for many years.

The “Chicago Hot Four” played music for dancing and listening.

As Oak Crest royalty, the Melmses will serve all year participating in festivals in the community and events at Oak Crest.
