By Christine Tandy Perkins, Executive Director, Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture
Last year the Tree Carver Cam Dockery carved three amazing sculptures out of three dead trees at the Comanche City Park. While they were a big hit, Cam carved them before the Pow-Wow instead of during the Pow due to inclement weather. Cam will be back this year (weather permitting!). Three more trees will be carved Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 26, 27 and 28 during the Annual Comanche County Pow-Wow festival at the Comanche City Park.
Cam’s award-winning work makes a unique statement about the trees in the Comanche City Park.
