The American Egg Board (AEB), on behalf of America’s egg farmers, has unveiled the 2022 First Lady’s Commemorative Egg, a symbolic gift for Dr. Jill Biden and an Easter tradition on behalf of America’s egg farmers. This year’s egg has been intricately designed to honor Dr. Biden’s commitment to ensuring all Americans have access to a quality education and with homages to Delaware, where Dr. Biden has called home since the 1970’s.
“It is a privilege and a joy for America’s egg farmers to continue the 45-year legacy of gifting the handcrafted Commemorative Egg, a tribute to our nation’s first ladies, their patriotism and service, and in recognition of the causes closest to their hearts. Eggs are an essential part of Easter and Passover celebrations, not just in our homes and with our families, but at the White House, too,” said Emily Metz, president and CEO of the American Egg Board.
Decades of First Lady’s Commemorative Eggs to be featured in ‘Colonnade of Eggs’
Celebrating the history of the First Lady’s Commemorative Egg, this year the White House East Colonnade has been transformed into a Colonnade of Eggs. More than 40 years of First Lady’s Commemorative Eggs—presented to every First Lady since the tradition began in 1977—are on display in the East Colonnade. The Colonnade of Eggs marks the first time that First Lady’s Commemorative Eggs representing multiple presidential administrations will be on display together.
Now that it has officially been presented to Dr. Biden, the 2022 First Lady’s Commemorative Egg will join the Colonnade of Eggs. A hand-painted quote from Dr. Biden showcasing her dedication to education is featured in flowing scrolls on the front of the 2022 First Lady’s Commemorative Egg: “Education is possibility set in motion.” Surrounding the quote are peach blossoms, Delaware’s state flower, and the American holly, Delaware’s state tree.
