GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Members of President Gerald Ford's family have joined a range of dignitaries and well-wishers for a series of events in Grand Rapids to commemorate the 101st anniversary of his birth.

The Ford Presidential Foundation, Library and Museum are joining together for Monday's celebration.

It included a wreath-laying ceremony at Ford's tomb, a ribbon-cutting that marks the opening of a new exhibit on aircraft carriers at the Ford museum, and a luncheon featuring a lecture by former Secretary of State James Baker.

Ford died in 2006, and former first lady Betty Ford died in 2011. They lived in Rancho Mirage, California, for decades. Their hometown was Grand Rapids.
