Breakfast Bites: Georgetown Then and Now
The Breakfast Bites meeting on June 12 will feature Britin Bostick, a planner, designer, and Hill Country native, presenting “Georgetown: Then and Now.” The informal meeting opens at 8 a.m. in the Friends Room at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St. The talk will start at 8:30 a.m. Coffee and light breakfast snacks will be provided.
Bostick has lived in Georgetown since 1997 and frequently works to bring new life to historic places, including the recently rehabilitated Taylor High School campus. She has also documented historic properties in Georgetown. Her presentation will showcase how Georgetown has changed in the last century and a half. Bostick will highlight what Georgetown looked like in 1848 compared to now, and hopes to foster dialogue about what the community can do to retain our historic properties while ensuring they remain keystones in our local economy.
At the June 12 meeting, there will be updates from City staff on:
- Arts and Culture
- Public Library events
- Convention and Visitors Bureau updates
- 2030 Comprehensive Plan Update

Also, learn about updates from downtown partner organizations and find out about new businesses in the downtown district that have opened or are under construction.
