Groundhog Day Mount Joy Minnie event

February 2, 2017 @ 6:50 am - 7:15 am

WOW! Winter is here and it is time to start thinking Ground Hog Day and who else but Mount Joy’s most famous ground hog: Mount Joy Minnie.

On February 2, 2017, Mount Joy Minnie, the profound female groundhog prognosticator will make her 8th annual appearance for this rain or shine event. The Mount Joy Chamber of Commerce holds Mount Joy Minnie in memory of her deceased founder Bob Myers and whose wife Sharon, owner of As The Crow Flies is also a Chamber member. We will gather at the Rotary clock between 6:45 and 7:00 a.m., sunrise is approximately 7:10 a.m. Unusual attire, spring bonnets, top hats, cowboy hats, furs, whatever, is quite satisfactory and very much in keeping with tradition and eligible for the “crazy hat contest”. A large number of observers and a lot of noise are the key ingredients needed to wake Minnie from her hibernation, so set the alarms and come on down dressed for the occasion.

Walter S. Ebersole American Legion Post 185 will again be serving up hot chocolate, coffee, and cookies. In case of rain, snow or ice we will crowd under the Berkshire-Hathaway canopy.
