What Happened to the 38 Pound Bird Donated By BP (Raised By Grace Martin)??
Remember this blog:
"Have you ever seen a 38 pound turkey?!
This broad breasted bronze had a live weight of around 50 pounds!
Grace Martin, 11 years old, with Country Meadows 4H club, raised this giant turkey. It was sold at the 4H Market Livestock auction during the Tanana Valley State Fair for a whopping $525 to BP who then donated it, and many other animals, to the Food Bank.
Thank you BP for your generous donations of food to the food bank and funds to the 4H kids and thank you Grace for your hard work! That will feed many families!"
Well we are pleased to announce that this turkey will be one of the turkeys fed to folks at the Immaculate Conception Thanksgiving Meal (11am-2pm Thursday). Click here to read the comments from Immaculate Conception on this huge bird, published in the Daily News Miner.
Thanks again Grace & BP!
