Greetings and gobble gobble from the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association (MTGA)! I serve as the Communications & Program Director for our organization and it’s been exciting to see all the media excitement already generated by our Presidential turkey flock of hopefuls. Just this week, we’ve fielded inquiries from all major Minneapolis-St. Paul television stations, along with several media outlets in Greater Minnesota as well.
We anticipate the buzz only growing next week, as we are planning for two very special school visits on Wednesday, October 26. We’ll be bringing two turkeys from the Presidential Flock to Epiphany Catholic School in Coon Rapids and St. Paul City School in the Frogtown neighborhood of St. Paul. In addition to the educational activities we have planned for each school, we simply can’t wait for these elementary students to meet our very special turkeys!
In the meantime, we are anticipating that the official White House invitation will come soon. And we will be posting a new video on our Web site next week so be sure to watch for that – it’s a fun piece, especially for kids, that shows a little bit more about turkey farming and also brings in a few history lessons about Thanksgiving, too!
Do you have a question for the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association? Or maybe you want to ask our Presidential turkeys something? If so, post your question below and we’ll get back to you!
