On Wednesday, November 20, CAG will hear from well-known Georgetowners Steve Kurzman, Barbara Downs, Pie Friendly, Billy Martin, and Chris Murray, all of whom have participated in CAG's oral history project. These engaging Georgetowners have recorded their recollections about life in Georgetown in one-on-one interviews with CAG’s oral history volunteers. The results have been fascinating – visit to read the summaries and/or the entire interviews. Come and meet these living Georgetown legends and hear some of their intriguing stories first hand.

Tom Birch will introduce the program with a summary of the project. The interviewees will then talk informally about their memories of growing up in or moving to Georgetown, pursuing careers here, raising families, building businesses, entertaining, renovating houses – and more.
