Barry's Turkeys Delivered a Day Late

A financial problem almost stopped a turkey giveaway for thousands of D.C. residents in need.

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.
 

The giveaway is November 22.
