Templeton celebrates Founder's Day

tstrickland@thetribunenews.comNovember 4, 2013 

After being canceled the past two years because of rain, the public finally got to enjoy Templeton’s annual Founder’s Day on Sunday.

The event, where everyone is treated to a free slice of pie, celebrates the anniversary of the day the first train passengers on the Southern Pacific Railroad stepped into town in November 1886. A street fair, displays at the community’s historical museum and tributes to the area’s agriculture were among the festivities.
