In October 2014 Fairmead Community & Friends received a grant for board members and Fairmead residents to attend a three-day training event at the NeighborWorks America – Community Leadership Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio. The training aims to strengthen the voices and skills of community, resident and volunteer leaders.
Groups that attended were eligible for an additional $2,000 grant for projects that they discussed at the training event. Fairmead Community & Friends was awarded this grant too! We are so grateful to have had this learning opportunity and the grant writing support of Eddie Ocampo at Self-Enterprises, Visalia.
Thank you Eddie!
Fred and Dorothy has made an effort to better the community they live in for many years, and they have always done it with worship, wisdom and respect for others. We’ll miss them.

Michael Eissigner authored a small history book about the first 100 years of our unincorporated community of Fairmead. Michael originally wrote this book for Fairmead’s June 2, 2012 centennial celebration where he donated all future proceeds going towards our community’s improvement projects.
In 1912 the Co-operative Land and Title Company set out to build a model farming community near the center of California. For one hundred years, this unincorporated community of Fairmead has been home to a diverse group of immigrants including African American and Hispanic farm workers. This book chronicles many of the changes during the community’s first century.
Th Chowchilla Elementary School District plans on using this book as a text book as part of a local history project with all 5th graders in the district. Besides being available at on-line booksellers, the book is available through our Fairmead community organization “Fairmead Community and Friends”. Click here to order Fairmead: A Century of Change
