The Bridge website was made possible in part by a grant from the Lester A. Walker fund of the Fremont Area Community Foundation. Former owner and publisher of the Fremont Tribune, Lester Walker was a respected business leader, community promoter and philanthropist. He encouraged others to make their community a better place to live, and nonprofit organizations throughout the Fremont area have benefited from his charitable legacy.
