Youngsters celebrate Senator Dole’s birthday

Posted on Jul 23, 2013 in Alumni News, Campus News, and News

The Dole Institute of Politics hosted a celebration of Senator Bob Dole’s 90th birthday yesterday.

The event featured birthday cake, party hats and a giant birthday card for the public to sign– along with events that are more typically found at a child’s birthday party. Local children, including a group from the Boys & Girls Club, made political buttons, ate cupcakes and enjoyed scavenger hunts in the gallery. The Lawrence Public Library also partnered with the Dole Institute to host Story Time.
