National Night Out

Celebrating Neighborhood Unity

Tuesday, August 1 was Fremont’s Annual National Night Out– this was our 23rd year of being a part of this National Program to promote community unity – exactly what Celebrate Fremont is all about! There were over 125 block parties to check out – talk about a great time had by all – the food was awesome, the music blaring with good vibes, neighbors were out and about getting a chance to get to know each other better, kids laughter filled the air, and everyone was having a jammin’ time!
This annual event is organized by Fremont Police Department – they did an awesome job of registering the parties; coordinating the teams of City staff and citizen volunteers, that went to the various neighborhoods; and getting the goodie bags chock full of information and merchant coupons assembled for distribution. Props to Fremont PD! The Fire Department added excitement to the festivities, especially when the fire trucks showed up to the delight of the kids of all ages.
Celebrate Fremont team members Sue Chan, Snigdha Dhar, Irene Koehler, Gaby Machuca, Anu Natarajan, Jack & Marie Rogers, Bernie Stewart, and Doug Tinney were there to talk up the Fremont Day at the A’s Game, Hands Around the Lake, and our big bash –http://www.celebratefremont.org/park.htmlEveryone was excited to hear about all these great upcoming events!
