On Saturday morning at 11 am, there will be
a FREE Children's Concert, presented by Mark Dvorak, and sponsored by the City of East Lansing. Kids of all ages are encouraged come to the University United Methodist Church and sing folk songs.

Bob Blackman, former host of "The
Folk Tradition" on WKAR FM 90.5 and frequent host of Ten Pound

Inspired by Pete and Toshi Seeger's highly popular Circle of Song

with each other. Lyrics for the songs sung at the Community
Sing will be passed out.
