George, Washington to celebrate George Washington’s birthday

Heartbreak Pass

GEORGE — Feb. 18 is the date for George, Washington’s George Washington Birthday Celebration.

“We had so much fun last year that we are going to do it again,” Georgette Debby Koy said.

Feb. 20 is the nationally-recognized Presidents’ Day holiday. But George is having its birthday party two days early.

If George Washington were still around, he would be celebrating 285 years since his birth in 1732.

The celebration will include a free community soup supper, a concert by Heartbreak Pass (admission is $5 per person) and, of course, birthday cake for all.

The doors of the George Community Hall will open at 5 p.m. for the community soup supper. The Heartbreak Pass concert will begin at 7 p.m.

Heartbreak Pass is a bluegrass band. It will perform standards from Bill Monroe, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, and maybe something from the Dixie Chicks, as well as Heartbreak Pass originals “Just Like Me” or “There’s a Hippo in the Hospital.”

The stories in the original songs come from real life, said guitarist Stan Hall.
