2023 Grand Marshal’s
Perry & Sandra Brott
Welcome, friends and community, to the 2023 Asotin County Fair and Rodeo!
We are Perry and Sandra Brott and we’re honored to be chosen Grand Marshals of this year’s fair.
Perry and Sandra have been married 43 years and have called the
Snake River their home for most of that time.
They have two daughters, a son-in-law, and two wonderful grandchildren.
Perry was born in The Dalles, Oregon.
Because of his dad’s construction career, the family moved all over the Pacific Northwest,
including Alaska, before settling down in Asotin in 1973.
Perry joined FFA and showed pigs and steers all through high school.
Perry’s class of 1977 was the last to graduate from the old Asotin high school.
After school, Perry worked alongside his dad until starting his own general
construction business, from which he retired in 2020. One of Perry’s
fondest fair memories was when the fair still had a motorcycle rodeo
and he jumped four cars on his 175 Yamaha.
Sandra was born in Lewiston, Idaho. She and her parents and four
siblings grew up in Clarkston until the family moved up the river out of Asotin.
Sandra graduated from Asotin High School in 1979.
In 1990 she began a long career with the Asotin School District starting as a bus
driver and para professional. She continues that career today as an
Administrative Assistant for Asotin Middle/High School. Sandra was in
horse 4-H and grew up competing in gymkhanas and junior rodeos. She
served as Lewis Clark Saddle Club Royalty and was a member of the
Asotin County Fair and Rodeo Royalty Court in 1979. One of Sandra’s fondest
fair memories was when she and some of her saddle club friends rode
their horses in pouring down rain all the way from Clarkston to Asotin
to ride in the parade and rodeo grand entry.
Perry and Sandra are proud to have a long family history of
volunteers of the fair. Sandra’s mom, Melva Bailey, was a royalty
chaperone for several years and her grandpa, Melvin “Bus” Foredyce,
served as Grand Marshal in 2000. Perry’s parents, George and Bev
Brott, dedicated many years to the fair board. One of the fairground
parking lots is named the “George Brott Parking Lot”. George served as
president for three years before Perry took over from 1989 – 1991.
After stepping down as President, he served on the Sales Committee for nine years.
When their girls were in school, Sandra and Perry volunteered their time as 4-H leaders.
Catching up with family and friends is one of the many things Perry and Sandra enjoy most about the fair.
They appreciate all the hard work and dedication of the many volunteers and supporters of
this time-honored event that brings an entire community together.
See you at this year’s fair and rodeo and good luck to all the participants!
