Thanks & Credits
Special Thanks to:
Bertha Fisher for sharing her wonderful scrapbook, dating back to 1948. Her husband was one of the founders of the Groundhog Club. She had many photographs and stories to share with me.
Bertha passed away in 2006. I will never forget the time I spent with her, going through her scrapbook and talking to her about the origins of Groundhog Day in Sun Prairie!
Julia Beattie for sharing photos and stories of her special little friend Willie.
Peter Klein for providing me with so much historical background.
Cheri Krisher, Jerry Hahn, for the recent history on our beloved Jimmy the Groundhog.
