Highway of Heroes thanks the community for embracing the banner project in honoring our veterans who have or are currently sacrificing to protect our freedom.

The banners, designed and created locally by Jamie Aylward of Wild Hare Sign Company, are displayed on light poles in Quincy from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31. The project has now reached its maximum capacity; however, expanding this project in another manner is being considered.

Since the inaugural year of the approval of the Highway of Heroes banner project in 2015, the installations and removal of banners were proudly provided by crews of Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E).

PG&E Retirees, Bill Secord and Bob Beach, continue to volunteer and took responsibility of hanging the downtown banners.

Most recently, Kevin Correira, director of Plumas County Facility Services, accepted the request and approved staff Brandon Thorton and Tyler Evans to take over the installation and removal of the banners.
