Former Vice President Dick Cheney will be in Grand Rapids next month as part of a celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of President Gerald Ford.
A tribute dinner is set for May 6 and a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a feature exhibition at the Ford Presidential Museum is to be held May 7.
The dinner will include a panel discussion about Ford's legacy featuring Cheney, Ford speechwriter Ben Stein and Ford's son Steven.
Cheney was Ford's chief of staff. In a statement, Cheney says he's "honored to pay tribute to the country's most humble leader."
He calls Ford "a man of great character who led our country through its roughest days."
Ford was born July 14, 1913. Events will take place throughout the year and be announced periodically.
