Charles "Skeeter" Bowman
It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Charles "Skeeter" Bowman. Skeeter served on the Fair Board from 1957-1986, and in 1987 he became an Honorary Director. Skeeter was very instrumental in the Fair being where it is today. Not only with his many years of service, but also the land on which the Fairgrounds is located. The Fair board agreed to purchase the land from Skeeter in October of 1983. Skeeter's name will forever be synonymous with the Garrett County Fair's past, present, and future. The Garrett County Fair Board of Directors would like pass along our deepest sympathies to the family of Skeeter. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
We also wanted to share this article from our 50th Anniversary Premium Book titled "Cows, Airplanes, and the Fair Skeeter Bowman Remembers." Enjoy!
