Fun Fact about Visalia and Canada

Visalia is pretty old. How old is she? When kids were in school there was no history class. *rim shot*
Back to the fun fact of the day. Visalia is older than Canada. Yes, Canada. The whole thing. Canada wasn't established until July 1st, 1867 and Visalia was in 1852. What do you think of that, eh? So, Happy Birthday, Canada!
