Mound City and Forest City celebrated their 150th birthdays during 2007 by displaying banners along their main streets  The banners were part of a Challenge Cost Share between Squaw Creek and with each community and were made by the Region 3 Sign Shop. 

The top 1/3rd  of each banner contained their centennial logo while the bottom 2/3rds had a wildlife picture plus the refuge name.  Each community was responsible for providing the brackets and installing each banner. 

Mound City installed their banners in early October while Forest city installed theirs in April.  This provided an excellent opportunity for Squaw Creek to become more visible in each community while adding color to their downtown main streets.
