Good day on this hot and rainy Tuesday.
Forget the St. Johns mint festival. The picturesque, surprisingly cultured-up little town north of Lansing is proclaiming today as “Oberstufenchor des Johanneums zu Luebeck Day.” That's the name of an award-winning 50-voice high school choir from Luebeck, Germany, that will be visiting St. Johns from July 24 to July 27 as part of the Blue Lake International Exchange Program. The students, ages 15 – 19, will be staying in private homes while visiting St. Johns. 7 p.m. FREE. William E. Tennant Performance Shell, 805 W. Park St., Saint Johns.
