Students attended an assembly to learn about agriculture and the farming of turkeys, and special guest was present for the kids: A turkey.
Moroni PTA President Carlee Christensen’s family was gifted a pardoned turkey from the governor and have since raised a couple of birds that are said to be so tame they were able to bring one to the school for kids to learn about and even pet.
A pardoned turkey ceremony dates back to the 1940s with U.S. presidents sparing a bird presented to them annually. Kids got up close and personal, a fun way to celebrate the local agriculture industry.
