Fremont Turns 60!
Submitted By City of Fremont
Next year represents a big milestone for Fremont Ð the celebration of its 60th anniversary! Join us for a time capsule ceremony and community picnic on Saturday, January 23, 2016. City of Fremont will host a celebration to applaud how far the City has come in the past 60 years, from establishing itself as a city to creating a brand new Downtown for its residents.
To memorialize this exciting day, Fremont will be holding a time capsule ceremony on Saturday, January 23, 2016, at 11 a.m. The time capsule, which will include items that reflect FremontÕs culture, diversity, life, and energy from the perspective of our cityÕs youth, will be installed on the site of the CityÕs future Civic Center. Contents are being collected via a partnership with the CityÕs Youth Advisory Commission and Fremont Unified School District. Intended to be opened at the CityÕs 100th anniversary, FremontÕs newest generations will have the honor of opening the time capsule and uncovering pieces of Fremont history.
The installation of the time capsule at the site of Downtown FremontÕs future Civic Center will be part of our anniversary festivities and the items collected will be critical in portraying who Fremont was in 2016.
Also, remember to take our survey at: http://tinyurl.com/pzmr3v7 to tell us what you think should be in the time capsule!
To enhance the celebration, join us on Capitol Avenue between Fremont Boulevard and State Street for a festive community picnic with food trucks and live music.
Local businesses, nonprofits, and community groups are also invited to host various festivities to commemorate the celebration throughout 2016. Between now and next January, get a head start on planning such festivities for this memorable occasion. It can be as simple as weaving in the CityÕs 60th anniversary into events already being planned for 2016 or creating a new signature event to commemorate this milestone.
To spread the word, a calendar of events will be posted to the CityÕs website to share when and where 60th anniversary events will be happening. DonÕt miss out on this opportunity to experience fun and fellowship with other Fremont community members as we celebrate our CityÕs achievements over the past 60 years.
