VERMILION, Ohio-- The 44th Woollybear Festival is coming up this Sunday in Vermilion and we have a message from Dick Goddard: He wants to make sure everyone has fun and hopes this is among the best years ever!

The legendary weatherman is still recovering from a fall at his home last week that led to hip surgery.

He's doing very well, but some of our FOX 8 News anchors will try to fill his shoes at the festival.

When you come out to Woollybear, there will be a big card for you to sign to send your well-wishes to Dick.

**You can also send photos and well-wishes to Mr. Goddard right here**
