Here's what's going on in town today.

Happy Thursday.

On this day:

On May 4 in 1957, the Anne Frank Foundation was formed in Amsterdam in memory of the famed Holocaust victim and diarist. Here's a link to more information about what the foundation and the Anne Frank House is doing today.

Today in Lansing is the Michigan State Police Department's 100th Anniversary. The Historical Society of Greater Lansing recognizes the 100th anniversary of the Michigan State Police with a program on the group’s history today. The program, conducted by historian and MSU criminal justice Professor Phil Schertzing, will look back on the origins and evolution of the group. Schertzing will also discuss the group’s role in significant local events, like the 1927 Bath School bombing and the 1951 Cass Building fire. 7 p.m. FREE.
