SummaryFremont property manager and neighborhood organizer Suzie Burke presents an informal program about the Fremont neighborhood's industrial past and business future.
DescriptionThe Fremont Branch and The Fremocentrist blog will present the next Fremont Fireside Chat at the Fremont Branch. The Fireside Chat series presents local historians and the people who were there to discuss the history, culture and people of Fremont. Moderated by Fremont's iconologist, Kirby Laney, of Fremocentrist.com, these free, educational events bring the stories of Fremont to audiences of all ages in our neighborhood’s historic library.

The next Fremont Fireside Chat will feature a discussion with Suzie Burke, a Fremont land owner and local organizer, who will talk, from personal experience about the industrial areas of Fremont and how they have evolved over the last 100 years. From mills, a gas works, ship yards and steel works, the Fremont industrial area now has a distillery, chocolate factory, other manufacturing and maritime businesses as well as Fremont's Silicon Canal. Ms. Burke will discuss how these changes came about and what we might be seeing in the future.

The one hour program, with a question & answer period, will be followed by a short reception where attendees can meet-and-greet and ask about all things Fremont.
