BOSTON – The United States will mark the 100th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s birth with a number of events and parties.
The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum announced Monday that the initiatives are intended to inspire new generations to find meaning in the values at the heart of the Kennedy presidency.
Jack Schlossberg says that the goal is to renew his grandfather’s call for “service, courage, innovation and integration.”
The celebrations include the release of a commemorative stamp by the U. S. Postal Service on Presidents Day and a special exhibition called “the JFK 100: Milestones and Memories” opening in May.
Kennedy was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, on May 29, 1917, and in 1960 was the youngest person ever elected president. He was assassinated in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.
