  Ms. TLAIB. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize the city of 
Wayne, Michigan as its residents celebrate the city's one hundred 
fiftieth anniversary.
  Wayne, Michigan was first incorporated in 1869, but its roots can be 
traced even further back as a trading post by the indigenous 
Potawatomi. With its prime location along the trading route, and in 
close proximity to the River Rouge, the area grew in population, 
securing the settlement's role in Michigan's manufacturing economy. 
Glass, carriage, and eventually automobile manufacturing.
  Modern day Wayne, Michigan is a thriving, friendly community. Its 
seventeen public parks are enjoyed by families and nature lovers alike, 
and its historic downtown area is the perfect backdrop for numerous 
community events like Wayne Days, Family Fest, and annual community-
wide flea market. The City of Wayne, Michigan has a long history, and 
its pride in traditional values of friendship and hard work are evident 
today.
  Please join me in tribute to the City of Wayne, Michigan on the 
occasion of its one hundred fiftieth anniversary.
