Groundhog Day Dinner ~ Feb 4th

Harrison Township Historical Society’s 13th Annual Groundhog Day Dinner and Silent Auction is set for Saturday, February 4, at 6 pm, at the Ewan Fire Hall, 312 Ewan Rd.GHD14.7

This annual event features “Down Jersey” sausage links, sausage gravy and biscuits, cole slaw, mashed potatoes, candied yams, fried apples, green beans, and a dessert buffet.  

“The menu entrée is a play on words,” said Society president, Suzanne Grasso.  “We serve sausage –  the ‘ground’ hog – to celebrate the holiday.”

The dinner is a fun-filled evening for the entire family.  In addition to the home-cooked menu, the program includes an emcee decked out in tails and top hat, a popular silent auction and perhaps the only opportunity in South Jersey to sing Groundhog Day songs.

Tickets for the event are $15 and available at the Amazing Grace Resource Center, 46 South Main St., Mullica Hill (856-478-9800), on-line at the Society’s website (, and at the door.  Advance purchase is recommended since seating is limited.

All proceeds benefit the Society’s exhibitions and educational programs at the Old Town Hall Museum, located at the intersection of S. Main St. and Woodstown Rd. in the heart of the Mullica Hill Historic District.
