HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY!
In honor of this assiduous and industrious (if slightly lackadaisical) creature, we present this snippet of hometown news (a little late, it has already occurred, but we wanted to save it for today) -
From the Rochester D & C
GROUNDHOG FEST TO BE SATURDAY
The Greece Chamber of Commerce's fourth annual Groundhog Day Festival will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Greece Canal Park, 241 Elmgrove Road.
The event will include a hockey shoot, woodcarving demonstrations, ice fishing (we wonder where they found the ice), a bean bag toss, food vendors (of course, the ubiquitous sausage carts), raffles and more.
A noon welcome ceremony will feature the Rochester Skydivers and a groundhog. (Italics ours) PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED.
There is no admission fee.
We are left to ponder the question - can the groundhog operate a parachute?
