The Adams County Agricultural Society is pleased to announce the 2016 Outstanding Fair Supporters are Mr. and Mrs. Don Bowles, owners of Dreamcatcher Communications.
Don and Venita Bowles were nominated for this distinguished award for their continuous support of the Adams County Fair and all of the youth that are participating in 4H and FFA.
“We were certainly surprised and very humbled to be chosen for this honor,” Don Bowles told The Defender.
Liz Lafferty, President of the Adams County Agricultural Society said that “it was an easy decision to recommend and approve Mr. and Mrs. Bowles as I personally get to work with them during fair events that include the parade, both small and large animal sales, the baby contest, cheerleading contest, and the Barnyard Olympics.”
“The endless promotions, radio shows, advertising and support is just a small part of what they give back to the community.  They are proud sponsors and huge supporters of not only the fair, but Adams County.”
Dreamcatcher Communications has played big role in promoting the Adams County Fair for decades, everything from emceeing numerous events, purchasing at the livestock sales, broadcasting live from the fair daily,and much more.
Mr. and Mrs. Bowles will be recognized at the Annual Ohio Fair Manager’s Convention in Columbus, in January of 2017 and will serve as Grand Marshals in the 2017 Adams County Fair Parade on July 9.
