News Release
Public Invited to Share their Memories and Reflections of President John Kennedy - 09/06/17

The Oregon Historical Society exhibit "High Hopes: The Journey of John F. Kennedy," continues to draw large crowds to OHS. The exhibit has led many Oregonians to recall the time when they met JFK during his visits to Oregon in the 1960 presidential campaign, to remember how he inspired them to join the Peace Corps, or to reflect on where they were and how they felt when they heard of his assassination. On Sunday, September 10, at 2:00p.m., OHS will host a free public program where individuals will be offered the opportunity to share their memories and reflections of the 35th President of the United States.

"As individuals view our remarkable exhibit on President Kennedy's life and legacy, so many of them are moved to share their experiences and reflections. We look forward to presenting this special opportunity for a public sharing of these memories, which are important pieces of our collective history," said Kerry Tymchuk, Executive Director of the Oregon Historical Society.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to view JFK campaign memorabilia which will be displayed by members of the Oregon chapter of the American Political Items Collectors Association.

The exhibit "High Hopes: The Journey of John F. Kennedy" remains on display at the Oregon Historical Society Museum until November 12, 2017.
