"Milltown Millbillies" Update

By: Jerry G.

Dear Ron,

Our little town came together for a very festive 1st Annual Milltown Groundhog Day. Well, over two hundred folks gathered in my parking lot to see "Milltown Mel", followed by a hearty catered breakfast for all of eggs, bacon, sausage, homefries, fruit, juice, coffee, bagels, rolls & donuts. (We also had an adult beverage of Champagne and orange juice). I rented a small stage lined with haybales and got an old hollowed-out stump for Mel. The stump was fitting it nicely with a animal transport case to hold the groundhog. Although I handle Mel daily, he admittedly got excited, being held aloft to a cheering crowd. I personally haven't had that much fun in a while. It was a wonderful hometown event. Thanks for all you help with the banner (proudly displayed) and inspiration. People around town are already asking about next year.

Not sure if you'd are interested, but here are few pictures. (I'm the dude with the groundhog!)

Thanks again and best wishes,

Jerry G.
