President Hinckley enjoys groundbreaking on his birthday

With characteristic gusto, President Gordon B. Hinckley turned more ground than any other at groundbreaking ceremonies last week for the new Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center on the Brigham Young University campus.

At ceremonies conducted by President Cecil O. Samuelson and featuring several general authorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and members of the Hinckley family, the 96-year-old President Hinckley, leader of the worldwide church, used a shovel for the groundbreaking picked from his own workshop at home.

Designed as a place to welcome friends of the university, the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center will serve as a campus home for BYU alumni, a front gate to the university and a place to feel the BYU experience. The building is expected to be completed in fall 2007.
