Gretna will host Groundhog Day festivities

By on January 17, 2018

Mount Gretna will be hosting its first ever Groundhog Day event on Saturday, Feb. 3, at 9 a.m. at 301 Bell Ave.

Mount Gretna Grady will make his debut appearance. Will this cute little groundhog, sporting a scarf and an aviator cap with goggles, come out of his groundhog lodge and see his shadow which means there will be six more weeks of winter? If this is so, he then retreats back into his lodge and goes back to sleep. If he does NOT see his shadow, he remains outside to play and people celebrate believing that Spring is just around the corner.

There will be refreshments and memorabilia for sale. This event is a fundraiser for the Mount Gretna Volunteer Fire Company.
