ROB WHEARY/Staff Photo As members of the Pine Grove Grundsau Lodge No. 5 look on, Bob Evanchalk, an assistant parks and recreation supervisor for Schuylkill County, reads the prediction of Grover the Groundhog and Sweet Arrow Sue. This marked the first year the lake has set up the Groundhog Day event after the Lodge disbanded last year.

PINE GROVE – While the entire world is moaning about Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction about six more weeks of winter, Schuylkill County may just see an early spring.
At least that’s the way Pine Grove’s Grover the Groundhog and Sweet Arrow Sue see it when they didn’t see their shadow on Feb. 2.
More than 90 people packed the Schuylkill County outdoor recreation area at Sweet Arrow Lake to hear the predictions of Pennsylvania’s “third and fourth most famous groundhogs” an event that began back in 2006 by members of the Pine Grove Grundsau Lodge No. 5.
