President Gordon B. Hinckley had a busy schedule on the 94th anniversary of his birth. He left Salt Lake City early that day, June 23, to fly to Washington, D.C., where President George W. Bush presented him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
He returned home that evening. On June 24, he addressed the Mission Presidents Seminar at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah.
The Church News has been asked to convey his gratitude to all who sent cards, letters and other birthday greetings. President Hinckley regrets that he is unable to give a personal response to each.
