Christine Murphy introduces the 2003 Queen right after Jane Ferrando Mills, the 1953 Queen crowned the 2003 Queen.

The 1953 Queen, Jane Ferrando Mills & her husband, David Mills with their son in the background. I would like to thank Mr. & Mrs. Mills for coming to the Ashtabula Bicentennial Celebration. They were truly one of the highlights of the celebration. They drove all the way from near Chicago so Jane could crown the new 2003 Queen, Stephanie Morris. Remember Stephanie, it will be your turn in 2053!
