The Kennedys Go Ice Skating in Hyannis Port

Nov. 26, 1961 - President Kennedy took a ride after church today to watch his wife and other Kennedys ice skate. They went to the Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Memorial Rink, which the family foundation built for Hyannis Port, Mass., in memory of the President’s older brother (pictured just before his death in 1944), who was killed in World War II. Along with Mrs. Kennedy, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy and his wife Ethel were out on the ice, along with several Kennedy children. The President is returning to Washington tomorrow morning, after his long Thanksgiving weekend at his summer White House.
