    There are many occasions in which you can receive a commemorative card from the President. I knew of the one for a wedding/marriage when we were planning our wedding. Here is a more complete list and link for all events:

    This link has more information, and should be read completely to ensure that you send the appropriate information needed. Some (not all) of the info follows.

    You may send information through several avenues: by mail, online at the website, or through fax apparently. Mail info follows:

    I suppose this is all fine and I don't want to start an argument. But, too many people I know would never talk to me again if I had a Bush send greetings.

    Same here but to my understanding all the address information is the same so when bush is out you can get one from the new guy ;)
    I already got a card from Mrs. "W" asking for money, it was a good laugh

    This Presidential greeting has been done for decades, with many presidents taking part...it has nothing to do with political arguments or debates. It's just a courtesy. Simple as that.

    (Sorry about the temporary previous post - my husband was signed into my computer, so I accidently posted under his name the first time.)

    Greeting Card from the White House

    I have done a search and couldn't find this anywhere.

    Can you imagine how exciting it would be to actually get a personal card from the President of the United States! Actually the President will send a signed card embossed with the Presidential seal to any couple celebrating their 50th anniversary (or beyond) or to any citizen celebrating their 80th (or later) birthday. At the other end of the age spectrum, the President will also send a congratulatory card to any newborn child. If you'd like, you can also have the card sent to you so you can frame it and give it as a unique one-of-a-kind gift! Send your requests at least 4 weeks in advance to :

    The Greetings Office
    The White House
    Washington,DC
    20500

    That was pretty sad you even mentioned that. :thumbs_do Have some class. If you don't want the greeting then don't ask for it.

    Cedar, thanks for the post.

    you can actually do this with lots of people, not just the president. When I got my Eagle Scout, my mom went off something like 60 requests for letters of recognition from all kinds of people. Most of them sent stuff back too. Here's a few ideas of ones I can remember...

    President
    Vice president
    Past presidents
    the entire presidential cabinet
    National Senators from our area
    National Representatives frrom our area
    State senators from our area
    State reps from our area
    Governor
    city council
    sheriff
    school board

    And probably 2 dozen more that I can't remember. I thought it was kinda silly, but my mom really got off on it and scrapbooked them all so I have this big book of all these letters from "important" people.

    ya, i sent one out a while ago for my godson's birth. It was cute. It had the presidental seal on it, it's basically something the mother can keep for her baby photo album. Plus, the kid only has one chance in a life to get a 'welcome to life' from the president, right?

    The link doesn't give you the information you need to request a greeting. This should help: Thank you for your interest in requesting a greeting from President Bush. You may submit a request via fax at 202-395-1232, mail to The White House, Attn: Greetings Office, Washington, D.C. 20502-0039, or by Web Mail located on the White House website at . Please make sure to include your full name with appropriate salutation, date of birth, mailing address, and your (the requestor's) name and daytime phone number. We ask that requests for greetings are received in our office at least six weeks in advance of the event date. At this date I recommend you fax or use White House Web Mail to submit your request. We will make every effort to send the greeting in time for your special occasion. For more information on our guidelines and the types of greetings you may request please visit the White House website at http://www.whitehouse.gov/greeting/. ;)
