 Hey, Transylvania County!  Let’s replace Ground Hog Day with the much more appropriate WHITE SQUIRREL DAY!!

WSQL will broadcast The Morning Show with Don and Ea, Monday, Feb. 2nd LIVE  in front of Jamies on Main  St. from 8 to 9:30am.

Move over, Punxsutawney Phil!  We’re starting a fun new Groundhog Day tradition here in Brevard that is sure to “steal the thunder” from Punxsutawney Phil.  Mark your calendars for Groundhog Day, Monday, February 2nd – 9am on the patio at Jaime’s Creole Brasserie at 44 E. Main Street.
Mayor Jimmy Harris will be on-hand to declare the day “White Squirrel Day”…. AND Brevard’s very own white squirrel ambassador, Pisgah Pete, will be on-hand making his own (accurate) predictions (about whether we will have 6 more weeks of winter and other things, too!…. Pete isn’t a one-trick-pony like Phil!). From now on, Brevard will be the epi-center of Groundhog Day!
WHY are we doing this?  Did you know that Brevard’s licensed wildlife rehabilitators (those hard-working volunteers who rescue, save and nurse our squirrels back to health when they need medical attention) do all of their work with NO financial assistance?  They pay for their medical supplies, medication for the animals, and food out of their own pockets.  We want to help!  We are raising money to assist with their work, and make sure that no squirrel is ever left behind.  :-)
You can help too, by dropping off your money donations in the form of a check made out to the “Heart of Brevard – Pisgah Pete Fund”…. thank you!!!  Each $25 donation receives a white squirrel from The White Squirrel Shoppe.


Sponsorships  are available and 25% of money will go to the White Squirrel Rescue program. Our first sponsor is Domokur Architects. Will you be next? Call 828 877 5252 to get on the list!  Great way to honor the animal lovers in your life.

Come on out to see if Pisgah Pete sees his shadow!
