Wrapping up a year of projects, the Celebrate Fremont 50th heritage team will host a presentation Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. in the Fremont Main Library Fukaya Room. A donation of the "Fremont Stories" three digital video disc sets and "Our City, Fremont: A Photo Tour" books will be officially presented to the Fremont Main Library manager, Angela Yang, to make available for the public to use, and to a Fremont Unified School District representative for elementary school teachers to use as a resource for their California history curriculum.

The Celebrate Fremont heritage team will present the conclusion of the "Fremont Stories Oral History Project" featuring videotaped interviews "Capturing the Moment" collected at the Celebrate Fremont @ the Park, where residents and visitors share their experience of Fremont's 50th anniversary celebration and their special memories.

The participants of the "Fremont Stories" interviews will also be presented with copies of their original un-edited interviews as a family keepsake.

"The heritage team's contribution to the success of Celebrate Fremont is obvious. With passion and dedication, the volunteers spent countless hours bringing to life the rich history and heritage of Fremont and recorded this for posterity. This research and analysis, while enriching in itself, provides a perfect starting point to planning Fremont's future," Fremont City Councilmember Anu Natarajan said.

The "Fremont Stories" set of DVDs featuring interviews collected during the anniversary year, 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 are available for purchase at the Museum of Local History. For more information on the DVDs, contact Patricia Schaffarczyk at 677-8461.

The Fremont Heritage historic districts bus tours will wrap Saturday, Dec. 16 with tours of Mission San Jose and Warm Springs in the morning and Irvington in the afternoon.

"Our City, Fremont: A Photo Tour," the companion book of the bus tours that allows for "on your own driving tours," is available for purchase at the Museum of Local History, Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum and The Shinn House Park and Arboretum.
