Harbour et al Give Comanche Museum New Sign

It was volunteerism at its best this past week when the project Larry Harbour has been talking about for several years finally came to fruition in the shape of a new sign for the Comanche County Historical Museum.

After planning "forever," the sign was finally becoming a reality as Harbour began lifting it toward the top of the pole.

This week it was Larry and Jason Harbour, Larry Graham, Marshall Wirtz, and museum board president, Garry Steele, who raised the sign. Larry gave the materials for the sign, and he and brother, Steve Harbour, set the concrete, and painted the steel. Garry painted the actual sign itself, while Comanche County Electric drilled the hole and Pate’s Rental furnished the lift.

Jason Harbour, Wirtz, and Graham were on hand to help get the sign hung in place.

It wasn't a day to be afraid of heights!

It wasn’t a day for Jason Harbour to be afraid of heights since the sign sits over 30 feet in the air!

And if you happen to drive over the overpass at night, be sure to glance north toward the museum. You will see a beautifully lighted sign, all thanks to the work of some fabulous volunteers!

And I know you are all tired of hearing me say it, but it just keeps needing to be said…it is the VOLUNTEERS, those people who are talking the money out of their own pockets and the time out of their own schedules, who are making the difference in Comanche, Texas, and here at United, we salute them!

    Yes, the Museum sign does look beautiful at night, and even in the daytime, it is an eye catcher.
    We are hoping it will catch the eye of visitors traveling to or from and when they see the sign, they will say, “Hey, let’s stop and look at that, looks like a great place”. Come to see us.
