Item Description

Our very own amazing Jeanette Kraynak created this basket filled with  treasures from Mt. Vernon in Virginia!  "Basket includes an armful of wonderful gifts, exclusively from Mount Vernon Estate Gift Shop!" 

Constituting America is so proud of our "Operations Director," Jeanette Kraynak:

"Jeanette Kraynak was born & raised in Historic Philadelphia, some of her earliest memories as a history buff is sitting in Independence Park as a young girl and realizing the Founding Father’s walked the same streets, saw the same view of Independence Hall, made plans for this great nation that changed not only this country but the whole world.

Visiting the Liberty Bell, actually touching it and placing fingers in the crack was an annual experience for Philadelphia students.  Visiting Valley Forge where Gen Washington’s troops slept in the cold convinced her Gen Washington was her favorite Founding Father.

Love of Country and the political process drew Jeanette to Washington DC during the Regan-Bush era and she never left.

Jeanette worked as a Capitol Hill Staffer, married Mark Kraynak in 1989 and started their family shortly thereafter. 

The Kraynak’s settled in Mount Vernon and the Mount Vernon Estate became her children’s playground.  As of member of Friends of Mount Vernon Jeanette participated in many lectures, events and celebrations at The Estate over the past 30 years.  The Kraynak Family live on land originally owned by Gen. George Washington and she still has the privilege of living in an area where many of our Founding Fathers walked, talked, laughed and prayed while planning this great Republic known as America.  When Jeanette isn’t busy with Constituting America she can be found walking her dog Liberty on the grounds of her favorite Founding Father, General George Washington."
