Annual Turkey Trot - Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

A long standing Parker tradition, the "Turkey Trot" was held this morning. This annual event has been held for at least the past 36 years.   Originally, it was held using real, live turkies!  It is similar to Pin the Tail on the Donkey, only now it is Pin the Wattle on the Turkey! There are 3 winners, one from each grade. A monetary donation is made in their name to "Turkeys 4 America".   In addition, this year's  Turkey Trot was used to help promot a food drive for the Reading Food Pantry.

This was an event of school spirit like I have never seen before. Thank you to all who helped to make it happen this year and maintain the tradition throughout the years.
