White House Egg Roll

April 8, 2012 by staff 

White House Egg Roll, It has been 134 years since the White House first invited families into its grounds for an Easter Egg Roll and on Monday the long-standing tradition will once again take centre stage on the lawn. This will be the fourth roll hosted by President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, with the theme of ‘Let’s Go, Let’s Play, Let’s Move’, based on First Lady Obama’s healthy living campaign.

More than 35,000 people will be joining them on the South Lawn for games, stories, cooking demonstrations and the traditional egg roll.

President Rutherford B. Hayes started the tradition in 1878. It was cancelled for 10 years from 1942 because of wartime egg shortages, but was revived by Mamie Eisenhower in 1953, and it has remained ever since.

For the sixth year, the eggs are being manufactured by Wells Wood Turning & Finishing Inc., a wood products company in the central Maine town of Buckfield.
This year’s eggs show a cartoon image of a bunny swiveling a hula hoop inside a seal that says White House Easter Egg Roll 2012. The signatures of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are stamped on the back.
