HYANNIS, Mass. — Several events will be held in Hyannis to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of President John F. Kennedy.

The slain 35th president would have turned 100 on May 29.

A Mass will be held Monday at St. Francis Xavier Church. It is the same church Kennedy's parents — Rose and Joe Kennedy — attended after buying their home in Hyannis Port in the 1920s. A memorial service will also be held at the JFK Memorial.

The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum will have a special exhibit called "JFK at 100: Life & Legacy." The exhibit displays more than 80 photographs, text panels and artifacts of Kennedy's life. The museum promotes the legacy of Kennedy, his family and their connection to Cape Cod and the islands.
