This year’s White House Historical Association ornament honors Franklin D. Roosevelt, our 32nd president, who served from 1933 to 1945. The design incorporates elements from President Roosevelt’s life and legacy during his historic four terms. The eagle cartouche is reminiscent of the speaker’s stand at his first inauguration, and the American flags contain 48 stars, the number of states in the union at the time of his administration. The ornament is in the shape of a tabletop radio from that era. Many Americans sat around such a radio to listen to his reassuring Fireside Chats. His beloved dog, Fala, appears on the back of the ornament, sitting under a Christmas tree and surrounded by presents.
WFCWC relies on sales of White House Ornaments to fund its charitable donations and scholarships. Each year the members sell ornaments to the local community, through individual sales, group sales at local community events, and setting up tables in front of local stores that allow such activity. Each ornament costs $21. We also have ornament stands and White House bags at our sales.
