This year, two alumni of Extension's Emerging Leadership Program are providing the bird! John and Joni Burkel are making the trip to Washington, D.C. with their fine feathered friend. John is the current chairman for the National Turkey Federation and Joni has long been involved in turkey promotion.

You can follow the story at the Minnesota Turkey Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/minnesotaturkey

Happy Thanksgiving!
