Long around fair, now Brunner’s behind scenes
Rose Brunner remembers coming to the Pierce County Fair when she was growing up.
As a member of the Rock Elm Skyrockets, Brunner submitted entries in sewing, crocheting, crafts and baking, she said. More recently, her children have shown animals, including a son bringing steers and two daughters with pigs.
Brunner said she first got a taste of fair management last year.
“I helped with ticket taking and parking cars,” she said.
