The Schoharie County Sunshine Fair will remember Blair Hartman this Saturday when they fill the Fairgrounds with flowers in his memory.
A longtime Fair director and treasurer, Mr. Hartman died on May 19.
For the past few years, he purchased and planted most of the flowers on the Fairgrounds, paying an estimated $1,500 out of his own pocket.
A few weeks ago, Fair directors launched a campaign to raise donations for the flowers, which volunteers will plant Saturday, beginning at 8:30am.
There will be coffee, refreshments, and instructions; all are welcome and it should only take a few hours.
Fair directors hope to make this an annual event.
Donations can still be made at the Fair Office or by mail: Cobleskill Ag Society, PO Box 249, Cobleskill, NY 12043.
