It’s Bob Dole’s birthday and and the Robert J. Dole Institute at the University of Kansas is hosting a party.
Dole was born in Russell and represented Kansas in the U.S. Senate for over 25 years. He ran for president in 1996.
Today is his 90th birthday and the public is invited to a free celebration at the Dole Institute in Lawrence.
From noon-4:30 p.m., they will have cake, a birthday card to sign, and other family-friendly activities, such as a scavenger hunt and mini golf course.
Dole himself is not expected to attend.
The party kicks-off a yearlong celebration of the Dole Institute’s 10-year anniversary.
