‘Punxsy’s Got Talent’ returns for annual Appreciation Day Saturday at SS.C.D.

September 21, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — One of the first signs of autumn is the return of one of the community’s most popular events: The Punxsutawney Spirit’s Appreciation Day.  

Brimming over with talent, food and fun for all ages, The Spirit’s annual tribute to its readers, advertisers and the community runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday at the SS.C.D. auditorium.

And due to popular demand after a successful inaugural event last year, Appreciation Day will again be highlighted by its own “Punxsy’s Got Talent,” with 10 local talents, beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday in the SS.C.D. gym.
