President’s birthday gifts to be displayed

The Kennebunkport Historical Society received permission from the Bush family to display items that were given to President Bush for his 90th birthday.

The items come from all over the world and include an urn from the King of Morocco, a book dated 1924 from President Bill Clinton, a painting of a young George Bush in the Navy from Russian President Vladimir Putin, a signed Ted Williams baseball and more.

Bush has also loaned the jumpsuit he skydived in on his birthday on June 12.

The collection will be on display at the First Families Museum at White Columns 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday through Oct. 1.
