Seven sisters and every one an exotic beauty

What do Pasay City, Philippines; Santa Rosalia, Mexico; Jalandhar, India; Chiang Rai, Thailand; Liyang, China; Asadabad, Afghanistan; and Baybay City, Philippines, have in common? Union City. From around the world, Union Citys sisters are coming together to celebrate and everyone is invited to the party!

There is no more reasonably priced vacation available anywhere for wrapping up the summer. Enjoy vivid, beautiful costumes, the diverse flavors and music of the world, and stunning cultural presentations all in one easy-to-get-to location. Visit seven international destinations and greet Union Citys varied sisters at their 11th annual Sister Cities Festival.

In 1955, only a decade into post-World War II healing, President Eisenhower felt that sometimes governments got in the way of cultural closeness and understanding. He wanted to see the people of the world return to a simpler, more trusting and open time. He believed that friendships began person-to-person and that from understanding, sharing, and learning about another countrys culture, peace would follow.

Vintage treasures await you in Niles

Presented by Niles Main Street Association, the annual Niles Antique Faire and Flea Market comes back on Sunday, August 30 to the historic Niles District of Fremont, where hundreds of vendors will take over and bring items reminiscent of yesteryear. Collectors and shoppers alike can choose among antiques, collectibles, arts and crafts, jewelry items and more.

Last year, the Antique Faire and Flea Market celebrated its 50th year a truly remarkable feat for a much anticipated community event. The event draws about 30,000 people every year, a positive impact for local residents and businesses as well. The shops and restaurants in Niles will be open for business, and some local residents will add their own yard sales on Saturday and Sunday. Shoppers also have the option to explore the history of Niles by visiting the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.; Niles Depot Museum from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Niles Canyon Railway.

One unique feature is that the event starts as early as 6 a.m., so there is plenty of time to look around for rare finds. This is a great opportunity to get to know the residents and rich history of Niles, where Charlie Chaplin and Broncho Billy Anderson furthered their careers.

Be bold and have fun at Boldly Me Water Gala

In todayÕs world of Instagram and Facebook, it can be hard keeping your head above the seas of likes and shares. We are bombarded with seemingly effortless glamour daily, forgetting that Photoshop touch-ups are delivered with many new profile pics, group photos, and the like, curated to perfection. The pressure to look flawless all the time is suffocating and stressful. How can we let go and live freely, knowing we are excellent just the way we are?

One Fremont nonprofit is on a mission to build self-esteem for the community, especially for those that look and feel different. Boldly Me has been providing resources, support, and creating awareness for people who look different, whether through birth conditions, medical treatments, injury, disease, or self-perception, since 2012.

Founder and President, Alanna Powell understands the difficulty of looking different in todayÕs world; she is a survivor of Alopecia Universalis, a medical condition involving the rapid loss of all hair. She also knows the power and joy in living your life fully and decided to empower others with confidence and courage three years ago through Boldly Me.
