One special Maryland community is celebrating the big 5-0!

How did Columbia begin and what is going on this weekend? Check it out!

According to Columbia 50 website: “It was founded in June of 1967 by visionary developer James Rouse who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In bestowing the award in 1995, President Clinton said, “James Rouse has changed this country. And if more will follow his lead, we can do the entire job we need to do in our cities.”

There is an official birthday cake cutting event tomorrow on the Lakefront at 7pm. There are more fun things to do in celebration of this big milestone here.
