The town of Sumner was first called Stuck Junction and then Franklin. The U.S. Postal Department requested a new name since there were so many places named Franklin. Three townsmen couldn't agree on what to change it to, so each placed a name on a piece of paper and put it into a hat. A boy was called into the store to pick one of the slips and it came out "Sumner."
Country music superstars, father daughter dances, Hollywood glamour, fictional comedic strippers, and Japanese viewing stones - there’s quite a variety of things going on in Tacoma and Pierce County this weekend!
