National Turkey Federation Chairman Carl Wittenburg presented the National Thanksgiving Turkey named “Drumstick” to President Trump.
The turkeys were raised with the involvement of 4-H members from Douglas County, Minnesota: Kodi Bundermann, Kayla Egenes, Katie Kent, Christina Kuismi, and Kerryn Lund under the supervision of the Wittenburgs. The names for the birds were suggested by school children through the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association.
Jaindl’s Turkey Farm of Orefield, Pa. provided the President’s family with two dressed turkeys as part of the First Family’s food donations to Martha’s Table in Washington, DC.
