It is an annual celebration in the Shipoke community. Mayor Papenfuse gave his remarks before Shipoke Sheena ( the canine substitute for a groundhog) declared that Spring is coming! Special guest was actor William Sanderson known for his roles in the Bob Newhart Show, Bladerunner and currently on Deadwood. He has homes in both Harrisburg, PA and California. City Councilwoman Shamaine Daniels also joined in the festivities. The group enjoyed music, donuts and hot coffee at Passages to India after the ceremony.
Judge Serratelli enjoyed sharing a morning of fun and friendship with the Shipoke community. The event supported Canine Rescue of PA this year.
Campaign manager Sam Smith rolled out the Elect Judge Serratelli t shirt for the occasion.
