President and First Lady to Celebrate Wedding Anniversary on Cape Cod

Sept. 8, 1961 - President Kennedy returned to Cape Cod late today to celebrate his eighth wedding anniversary with his wife and family. Mr. Kennedy's Air Force jet landed at Otis Air Force Base at 6:03 p.m. He waved to the crowd, which was much smaller than during the tourist season, with a rolled-up newspaper. The President boarded a helicopter for the 18-mile flight to his summer home overlooking Nantucket sound. Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy will observe their anniversary a little early. They were married Sept. 12, 1953, at Newport, R.I. (pictured).
