Volume 30 • Number 01 January, February & March 2018 Ashton, IL 61006 Salute to Ken Drew by Jeff Meiners

Nobody at Crest can honestly say they re- member when Ken Drew started work- ing here, that’s because no other person from Crest was here when he started. That’s right; Ken is the longest tenured employee currently at Crest having devoted forty-seven and a half years to his job at Crest. Feeling that almost half a century is probably enough, Ken is ready to hand that title over to someone else as he is preparing to retire in mid- January. As is often the case, a fortuitous com- bination of circumstances brought Ken to Crest. Ken was working for the lumberyard in Franklin Grove when he was asked to assist a driver on a delivery. The return trip home brought them through Ashton as the driver had a girl- friend who was working at the bar in town. While the driver was visiting his girlfriend, Ken thought he’d walk across the street to visit a couple of people he knew who were working at Crest on Main Street. Ken happened to run into Dick Moeller at Crest and after a bit of conversation was offered a job for $2.20
