About the Groundhog Club of Silicon Valley

The Groundhog Club of Silicon Valley was established in February 1990 by nostalgic Pennsylvanians living in the San Francisco to San Jose area.

The main club purpose is to conduct an annual Pennsylvania Groundhog Party to celebrate our home state. We salute Punxsutawney Phil, eat real Pennsylvania food, listen to Pennsylvania music, keep alive our traditions, meet other Pennsylvanians, and help the community with a charity raffle and silent auction.

The Silicon Valley Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association has cosponsored this event since its beginning. Other Pennsylvania groups are welcome to join as cosponsors. The membership is 190 members
