GROUNDHOG DAY

Description: CONNECTICUT’S ONLY OFFICIAL STATE GROUNDHOG
MAKES PREDICTION SATURDAY 2/2/19
Only “Connecticut Chuckles” knows if it will be a long winter or an early spring
here in the Nutmeg State. He makes his home at the Lutz Children’s Museum in
Manchester, and he extends a formal invitation anyone who wants to witness his
prediction.
A crowd of dedicated fans join local dignitaries and the media each year to hear the
prediction straight from the groundhog’s mouth. Luckily, the mayor speaks
groundhog and will be present to translate.
Groundhog Day falls on a Saturday this year, which means that you won’t need to
rush to work or school immediately following the prediction.
The museum will open to the public at 6:00 AM on Saturday 2/2/19. Coffee and
breakfast foods will be served while we await his arrival at about 6:45 AM. This
event is free and open to the public.
Chuckles is approximately seven years old. He was severely injured in an
altercation with a larger animal and received care at the Meigs Point Nature Center
in Madison before moving to Manchester to begin his new career in meteorology.
The Lutz Children’s Museum is a non-profit organization that has been offering
educational programs for young children since 1953. Learn more about the
museum at our website www.lutzmuseum.org.
