TURKEY TRIO VISITS ST. DAVID’S SCHOOL IN RALEIGH TODAY

Farmer Mary packed up all three of her turkeys, Mom, Dad and Baby, into her car to take to St. David’s School in Raleigh this morning for a talk about turkeys. TURKEY LURKEY, the baby turkey, goes to alot of parties and events, but this is the first time for THOMAS and his wife..The turkeys settled well in the car this morning, singing along to classical music on WCPE. Farmer Mary has found that classical music really calms her animals during transport.

Every Tuesday the upperclassmen have a student led morning assembly and this morning the topic was turkeys! Farmer Mary shared facts and history and then students were allowed to come close and pet or pose for photos with the turkeys. THOMAS the male turkey puffed up his feathers whenever a student wearing red came close.
Seniors were happy to hear they can do their service hours at Winterpast Farm!
