Turkey-athon has nonprofit staff dressed like turkeys

Nonprofits in Washington County are conducting a Turkey-athon to collect turkeys for low-income folks' holiday dinners. Our own Susan Farley is going to dress up like a turkey tomorrow and stand in front of the Blue Bird Restaurant in Machias to collect donations. Other WHCA staff members will be dressed as a pea, a potato and a farmer. It is rumored that County Manager Betsy Fitzgerald will be a pea as part of the effort. There is a challenge to local police departments to donate 10 turkeys each if Susan pulls off this stunt.

The turkey and her friends will be in front of the Blue Bird Restaurant in Machias from 11a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow, Friday, October 22.
