To honor the 100th anniversary of George H.W. Bush’s birth, the George & Barbara Bush Foundation has launched the centennial commemoration, 41@100: A Celebration of George H.W. Bush. The centennial will run from June 12, 2023, through December 31, 2024, and will culminate on what would’ve been President Bush’s 100th birthday on June 12, 2024. There will be a schedule of events coming soon with opportunities for Bush Alumni and the community to help celebrate the extraordinary achievements of President Bush during a three-day celebration from June 11 – 13, 2024. Throughout the next year and beyond, the Foundation will host special programming to highlight President Bush’s extraordinary life and achievements.
