Mission

water tower for BBB

A campaign to instill pride, create vision and build on the unique opportunities our community offers as we strive to become the best Bowie we can be.

The Bowie News seeks to getting citizens to think about the positive things that their community special and the reasons they choose to make their homes here. Then let’s promote and develop those assets and move our town forward.

The mantra for Build a Better Bowie is drawn from the 1925 bond campaign to build the city auditorium. That original advertising campaign encouraged citizens to believe in the possibilities of their town, talk loyally about it and grasp every chance to spread the “gospel of faithfulness” to your hometown. It asks you to give your efforts to anything that means improvement for Bowie. Buy from local merchants and shoulder your share of civic responsibility.

“Help build Bowie bigger and better! Let’s go,” exclaimed the 1925 Bowie Blade.
