A Placerville woman named Betty Colbert celebrated her 100th birthday in a big way on March 26, 2022. Walter Gefrom shares the unique story:
Turning 100 years old is no small feat. Looking as healthy and lively as Betty Colbert does at this age is another victory, to say the least! And for her big day, Betty wanted to celebrate with her own classic car show. She and her late husband, Eugene, had both loved enjoying these wonderful automobiles together for so many years. Happy to show their support for a member of the community, classic car collectors in Placerville arranged a cruise car show for Betty. The birthday party was a smashing success with well over 75 classic car enthusiasts showing up in support of Betty’s big day. Talk about wholesome!
