CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Carmichael’s 104th anniversary was recently commemorated at Founders Day in Carmichael Park.
The town was founded as a Sacramento colony in 1909. Real estate entrepreneur Daniel Carmichael gave his name to the farming community.
Music, exhibits, children’s games and a visit from the Sacramento River Cats’ popular mascot Dinger set the seal on all-day birthday celebrations. The Carmichael Times presents a pictorial report.
