Prepping kids for Groundhog Day in Malverne


Malverne Mayor Patti Ann McDonald got children of all ages excited for Groundhog Day on Jan. 18. She spent the day visiting several schools in the village that include Maurice W. Downing Primary School, Davison Avenue Intermediate School and Our Lady of Lourdes School.

In addition, Malverne Mel accompanied the mayor as she greeted children and shared stories about the history of Groundhog Day in the village, and asked whether they wanted an spring or not. The village will hold its annual Groundhog Day with Malverne Mel on Feb. 2, at Crossroads Farms at Grossman’s at 7 a.m. There, he will make his prognostication on whether we’ll have an early spring or six more weeks of winter.
