What better place to celebrate Presidents' Day than a town that is this country's only George, Washington.

But this town named after the father of our country has a scant 263 people, down eight from the 1980 census figure.George, nevertheless, was celebrating Monday, even if the holiday is now known as Presidents' Day.

A giant cake for 700, a cherry pie bakeoff contest, tables where people can write postcards to area soldiers in the Persian Gulf.

George, Wash., is the only U.S. community that has the full name of a president and Washington is the only state named after a president.

"It can only be done in Washington," boasted Edith Brown, wife of town founder Charlie Brown.
