Capturing Fremont's Stories

The Celebrate Fremont Heritage Team is bringing the conclusion of the Fremont Stories Oral History Project to the Fremont Main Library on Wednesday, December 6th, at 7pm. The presentation will feature interviews collected during Celebrate Fremont @ the Park. Residents and visitors recorded their experience of Fremont’s 50th Anniversary celebration and special memories they wanted to share with others. The stories are entitled Capturing the Moment.

The Fremont Stories Project included production of a set of DVDs which reflect three eras of Fremont History:
➢ Washington Township through 1955
➢ The New City: 1956-1977
➢ A United Nations City: 1977-2006

The Fremont Stories DVDs will be available for purchase. For more information about the Fremont Stories project, please contact the project coordinator, Patricia Schaffarczyk. at (510) 677-8461.
