Sign dedicated in Bolton’s memory

Steve Bolton had a dream to welcome people to Comanche but he never got the opportunity to see the idea come to completion before his death last October.

The city persevered, however, and wouldn’t let the idea die. The vision of Bolton and the city leaders came to conclusion last week with a ribbon cutting that included the Chamber of Commerce, city officials and many friends at the new digital sign on Highway 81 at Centennial Park.

“As soon as I came on as city manager, he started talking to me about getting a sign,” said Chuck Ralls, city manager. “It was his vision and with a collaboration of the city, we worked really close together. He helped put together the design.”

They went back and forth on the type of lighting and the design.

“One thing we both wanted to make sure of is to make sure the matched the big Centennial wall that was done and we wanted to get the same stone,” Ralls said. “This is all possible because of Steve’s vision. Unfortunately, he’s not with us today, but we know he’s looking down on us. Hopefully, we can honor his legacy by promoting Comanche with a sign.”
