Happy Thanksgiving and Some Presidents Pardoning Turkeys

A hearty Thank You and Happy Thanksgiving to our readers and customers. Some of you have been with us since we started as Fair Trade Quilts and Crafts back in November 2000. Bless you and thank you for your support.

Turkey Pardon Tradition: Since 1947, the chairman of the National Turkey Federation has provided the President with a Turkey to pardon. President Truman was the first to issue such a reprieve, ensuring it a long life relaxing on a farm in Virginia.

Some Presidents Pardoning Turkeys:

President Truman, 1947

President Eisenhower, 1956

JFK in 1963

President Ford, 1975

President Reagan, 1982

President Bush, 1990

Happy Thanksgiving!
