By From page A12 | September 19, 2012

The community of Georgetown, north of Placerville, celebrates its 163rd birthday this year at Founders Day on Sunday, Sept. 23. The event is sponsored by the Georgetown Divide Rotary Club and is always a family, fun-filled day.

The day begins with a pancake breakfast at the VFW Hall on Main Street starting at 7 a.m. and vendor booths opening at 10 a.m. Music performances are scheduled throughout the day on two stages. There is something for everyone with a beard contest, horseshoe tournament, crafts, food, parade at high noon and a special Kids’ Zone featuring $5 wristbands for all-day inflatables. Special visitors to this year’s event are Wyatt and Virgil Earp along with gunfighting legend J.B. Books with Wild West shootouts on Main Street. Don’t miss this day of fun for the whole family just a short drive up the hill to historic Georgetown.
