Fenwick Flossie is a beloved groundhog who makes her yearly appearance on Groundhog Day in front of cheering children and excited onlookers. She is known for her ability to predict the arrival of spring, as legend has it that if she sees her shadow on Groundhog Day, there will be six more weeks of winter. Fenwick Flossie has become a cherished Pelham tradition for over 25 years and her annual emergence from her den is a much-anticipated event.
After making her prediction, Fenwick Flossie gets to mingle with the children who come to see her. The kids get to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and cookies provided by the Fabulous Fenwick Lions Club while they get to meet and interact with Flossie. It’s a fun and festive event that brings the community together.
This year’s event will be held at the Fenwick Lions Clubhouse, 999 Chruch St Fenwick, on Feb. 2, 2023, at 10 am.
