LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Residents are being invited to the University of Kansas in Lawrence to help mark the 90th birthday of former Sen. Bob Dole and celebrate his life of public service.

The event Monday will be held at the Dole Institute of Politics where the former Republican U.S. senator’s archives are housed. The institute opened in 2003.

Dole is not expected to attend.

Dole served in the U.S. Senate from 1969 until 1996, when he retired to run for president but lost to Democratic incumbent Bill Clinton. Dole is a World War II veteran who served in Europe, where he was severely wounded in battle in Italy.

Activities scheduled for the birthday celebration include serving cupcakes, making political buttons and the signing of a card wishing Dole a happy birthday.
