Marion Barry's Turkey Giveaway Adds Requirements

View Comments ()



    If you are counting on getting a free turkey from D.C. council member Marion Barry this year, be prepared to show up to a few meetings.  

    Barry is requiring people to pre-register and commit to attending public meetings, The Washington Post reported.
    Residents must attend three community meetings or attend every PTA meeting from October to November if they are a parent of a school-aged child.
    Barry told the Post the pre-registration should avoid last year's turkey-distribution mess, when some people were left turkey-less after a billing dispute.
