Happy Birthday, Fremont

Thanks to cynthia1960, I have had it brought to attention that the city where I live, Fremont, California, celebrates its 50th anniversary today.

Fremont consists of four smaller towns that incorporated together. Apparently it was planned to be five, but one of the members of the party opted out, and that is why Newark, California is an enclave completely surrounded by the city of Fremont.
