The White House Historical Association's Official 2020 White House Christmas Ornament honors John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the thirty-fifth president of the United States. With this ornament we remember President Kennedy through his posthumous official White House portrait, made in 1970 by Aaron Shikler. The portrait, symbolic of his unfinished presidency, hangs in the White House today.

The reverse of the ornament features the dates of President Kennedy's brief term, 1961-1963, on either side of an engraving of the White House. The White House as it is today is another Kennedy legacy. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy restored the furnishings and decor of the State Rooms to the era of the early presidents and invited the public to view them in a television special. "The White House belongs to the American people," she said. The White House Historical Association, which Mrs. Kennedy founded in 1961 continues today to fulfill the mission she envisioned: "to enhance understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of the historic White House." The Association remains a lasting legacy of a presidential term unfinished.

All proceeds of our fundraising efforts support the George E. Myers Scholarship Fund. Since 1997 our fundraising efforts have provided 57 scholarships totaling over $160,000 to volunteers, management, and staff of DCUC member credit unions so that they may further their professional credit union education, knowledge, and leadership skills.

 

Thank you for your continued support!
