Sun Prairie: Groundhog Capitol of the World
For more than 50 years, Sun Prairie Groundhog club members and supporters have been proclaiming Sun Prairie to be “World Headquarters of the Groundhog.” This proclamation has caused reverberations from the halls of congress, to the coal fields of Pennsylvania, and in the news media of the country.
Another year, there were two stuffed animals, and a wedding was held. This gave rise to a declaration by our congressman, Glen Davis in the Congressional Record that Sun Prairie groundhogs were ‘legitimate’ and that those in PA were otherwise. This, of course, prompted an equally frivolous response from the Punxsutawney congressman, all printed in the Congressional Record.
