MISSION STATEMENT

 

Our goal is to recognize the service, dedication, commitment, and bravery of the men and women from the
Chico area who have voluntarily committed to the protection of our nation.
We are talking about those who are putting their lives on the line for us while serving in
the Marine Corps, Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and National Guard.
We want to show respect and appreciation for their service by posting their pictures on vinyl banners onto
utility poles at various locations throughout Chico.
We want to thank our local heroes and have them remembered by our community as they serve at home or abroad.

Each banner will have a few words of thanks to them and their families and their branch of service.
There is no charge to the military member because we believe they have given more than enough already.
We are asking caring citizens to help fund this program which we believe will provide a source of pride and comfort to our
heroes and their families as they drive down the Esplanade, East Avenue, Cohasset Road, or many other streets where they
can see that banner with a familiar face looking back at them. We also believe that this program can provide a great source of
community and civic pride for citizens in and around Chico, knowing that we are proud to recognize and honor those who serve.

We are a non-profit organization and will be able to operate and maintain this fund with the help of Chico’s Golden Valley Bank.
Donations are tax deductible and will be used wisely, fairly, and for no other purpose than to further the goals of this program.
Your support is greatly appreciated! Thank you.
