Dancers from Danza de Guadalupana de Norwalk perform during All Together Fremont on Aug. 3, 2019.
Great Lakes Community Action Partnership and many community partners hosted the annual All Together Fremont event Aug. 3 in downtown Fremont in conjunction with the Fremont Farmers’ Market.
GLCAP along with Downtown Fremont Inc., Sandusky County Habitat for Humanity, Ohio Migrant Education Center, Living in Faith Together (LIFT) Fremont and Camp Fire USA organized the event that brought thousands of visitors to the downtown. All Together Fremont was sponsored by U.S. Bank, Brown & Brown Insurance of Toledo, the City of Fremont, and Fremont City Schools.
Visitors heard a variety of music that included bagpipes by Cleveland musician Scott Sopata, flamenco guitar by Paul Gregory Whitt of Columbus, classics by Gary Jones and the Rusty Rhythm Section of Fremont, and performances by the Fremont Ross Marching Band Drumline and the St. Joseph’s Central Catholic High School Marching Band. Performances also included dancing by Danza de Guadalupana de Norwalk and Danza de Matachines de Willard.
“We are grateful for the community’s support of All Together Fremont,” GLCAP Public Relations Director Alex Boroff said. “We love giving our guests a chance to see diverse entertainers and enjoy good music.”
The event also included an annual school supply giveaway supported by LIFT, as well as school uniform giveaways from Sandusky County Share and Care Center and Pontifex of Fremont. More than 800 bags of school supplies were given away at the event.
“As always, LIFT pulled through for children and families with their school supply giveaway,” Boroff added. “LIFT, along with Pontifex and Share and Care, continue to do good things to help people in need in our community, and we are thankful for their support.”
