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.
