LAWRENCE — The Robert J. Dole Institute at the University of Kansas will host a celebration in honor of former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole’s 90th birthday. The public can stop by between noon to 4:30 p.m. Monday, July 22, for cake, signing a birthday card and family-friendly activities. The event is free.

“Senator Dole’s legacy truly inspires everything we do. We are honored to share this milestone of the senator’s with our own 10th anniversary,” said Dole Institute Director Bill Lacy. “It’s a great time to throw a bash for both that everyone can attend."
