In 1950, the Rengen carpenter Nikolaus Leyer made a new, open frame made of beech wood for the Drees. Back then it was customary to clean the Drees on Whit Monday. After the work was done, the girls and boys went through the village and collected eggs, which were then eaten in the Marthen Inn with music and dancing.

In 1980 the Drees was reconditioned with a special pipe and provided with a brick surround and a cover.
