Here's a recap of our City By City report from Monday, June 9, 2014:
An exchange program is bringing in high school students from around the world and there is a need for families who can host them. That's according to the Niles Daily Star. Hosts can be traditional families, empty nesters, or even single adults. They serve not only as hosts, but mentors. The program is sponsored by International Experience USA and they need potential hosts to apply by August 15. Click on the Big Red Bar for more information.
More than a dozen Knox high school students put their musical talent to work this past school year, to help others. The students participated in the music recycled program. Students took lessons from professionals and then paid it forward by giving lessons to middle school students. It's all funded by the Drew's Gift Foundation. Our partners at WKVI say participating students even earned cadet teaching credit on their report cards.
Lake Michigan College has announced who will be performing at the Mendel Center for their upcoming season. The lineup includes Grammy winning guitarist Peter Frampton in August and Air Supply in September. In March, the Mendel Center will feature “Rain”, a Broadway tribute to the Beatles. There will also be a host of professional musicians, choirs, theater events and comedy routines.
Merrifield pool opens Monday in Mishawaka. It is located on East Mishawaka Avenue. The Olympic-sized pool includes a 160-foot water slide, a water basketball net, and a figure-eight wading pool with a water umbrella.

The PHM school district kicks off its summer meals program Monday. There are 11 locations, with many of them offering both breakfast and lunch. The free meals are available to kids 18 and under, Monday through Friday. Those who are older than 18 may qualify if they are determined by a state or local public education agency to be mentally or physically disabled or participate in a public or non-profit private school program for the mentally or physically disabled. We have the summer meals schedule on the Big Red Bar.
