Museum of Local History celebrates 20th anniversary
Submitted By Kelsey Camello
The Museum of Local History began its operations in 1995 to preserve the history of Fremont, Newark and Union City. Located in an old firehouse in FremontÕs Mission San Jose area, the Museum has stood the test of time and is celebrating its 20-year anniversary.
Since its opening, the Museum has been able to maintain regular day-to-day operations, help with the restoration and upkeep of the Rancho Higuera Historical Park, host school and group tours, sustain the Museum, and work on archives and collections. The Museum also puts out a quarterly newsletter, hosts various walking tours, historic presentations, book releases and annual events. All of this has been made possible due to the hard work, dedication and volunteer efforts of many individuals over the years.
Now, the Museum is hosting a birthday party to thank all of the surviving founding members, as well as the volunteers and current members of the historic community. All are welcome to celebrate on Saturday, September 26. A potluck lunch begins at 12 p.m., followed by the program at 1 p.m. Guests are invited to bring a salad or side dish to share.
Come out and enjoy a trip down memory lane, historic displays, treasured photographs, witty reminiscences, and a little bit of music!
RSVPs are requested by September 22 to (510) 623-7907 or Kelsweems@yahoo.com
