In Loving Memory


"Our Washburn County Fair family has lost one of the best. Dan Rosenbush was our Vice President and past President. What Dan has done for our fair will never be forgotten. Dan believed in our youth and adults as he was a dedicated teacher, mentor, superintendent, 4-H Leader, volunteer, coach, father, husband and just a really nice guy.


He had a great sense of humor while wearing the pig butt hat during the swine show. If there were technical difficulties with the sound system or stage Dan was there. Dan and Susie have raised two beautiful daughters that value and exemplify strong leadership. Our fair is so grateful for his time and talents. Although he will be undeniably missed, he has made our community a better place to live."
