QUINCY — The Adams County Bicentennial Commission has added Quincy Recycle and Quincy Farm Products as sponsors for the county’s 200th anniversary celebration.

The commission recognized Quincy Recycle as the John Quincy Adams Sponsor and Quincy Farm Products as the Premier Sponsor for the Adams County Bicentennial during the presentation on Monday morning. Quincy Recycle donated $30,000 to the celebration, and Quincy Farm Products donated $20,000.

Commission chair Chuck Scholz expressed his gratitude for Quincy Recycle’s and Quincy Farm Products’ support.

“It’s a great matchup,” Scholz said. “It means a lot to us, especially at this level. We’re extremely grateful to everybody here at Quincy Recycle and Quincy Farm Products.”

Quincy Recycle and Quincy Farm Products are celebrating their 50th and 10th anniversaries, respectively. Keith Stokes bought Quincy Recycle in 1974, and his son Bryan now owns the company.

“Adams County has a rich history and a bright future,” Bryan Stokes said. “When you read the names of our businesses, it’s easy to see that Quincy is home, and we are proud of that. We are thrilled to celebrate Adams County’s 200th year.”

Scholz said the Stokes family’s reputation in the community makes them a great partner for such a celebration.

“Those of us who have gotten to know the Stokes family knows that when anything good is happening in Quincy, they want to get involved and support it,” Scholz said. “They have made some significant contributions to enhancing the quality of life in Quincy, and I think this is a great example of that. They want to make sure everybody understands our heritage and our values. That’s what we’re going to exemplify next year with our bicentennial.”
