Punxsutawney Phil Visits Reid – ABC27 NEWS

2018 Punxsutawny Phile BANN

Punx Phil VIDEOOn his way to the PA Farm Show, Punxsutawney Phil stopped at Reid Elementary School to make a live appearance four weeks before his nationally recognized annual appearance on February 2nd. Phil’s top-hat handlers shared little-known groundhog facts with the Kindergarten and First Grade students. Students shouted cheers for winter or spring, led by two first graders who were crowned “Groundhog King” and “Groundhog Queen.” Phil’s handlers gave Reid principal, Mr. Trevor Saylor, a plush groundhog to commemorate Phil’s visit.

ABC27 News was present to capture the event and will air coverage on Tuesday, January 9, 2018
on their 5:00 p.m. broadcast and possibly again on the 6:00 p.m. broadcast.
