    St. Mary’s Social Justice committee is presenting our third annual summer book club, Just Books. This summer we hope to entice our high school (and interested middle school) friends to join in the conversation. Two of our books are especially written with young adults in mind and the third is timely, well written, and a beacon of hope from Pope Francis. This would be a great opportunity for parents and/or grandparents to team up with a favorite teen and dig into some great literature. Even if you have no teen with whom to share the stories, come anyway–all of these books are bestsellers. Here is the line-up:
    Wednesday, July 17: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
    Wednesday, August 21: Untwine by Edwidge Danticat
    Readers are responsible for obtaining the books. The books on the list are available to download, through libraries, and at bookstores. Book club conversations begin at 7:00 PM and last about 90 minutes, meeting in the St. Joseph Room.

    Summerfest is a community outdoor concert event celebrating 10 years of outdoor music to the White Bear Lake Community. We have two great acts under the big top this year. The Elements will start things off at 6:00 PM followed up by the acclaimed, The Good the Bad and the Funky.

    “The Good, The Bad and the Funky play, Rock and Roll, Blues, and Funk. They have a 10-person band with a large section of horns. This band has a sound of their own and put it to the test with well-known songs from the past. Very entertaining with everyone singing along and dancers never leaving the floor. This is one of the few bands that the main singer visits with anyone and everyone. I find that the whole band was friendly with the crowd.

    The Good the Bad and the Funky have their own take on famous music using very talented musician and singers to put a funk twist to the music, mesmerizing the crowds into euphoria. The Good The Bad and the Funky have a large following from music venues to local bars, always packing them into where there is absolutely no room to dance. But everyone still moves to the beat of the music.”  By Mitzi Beliveau

    Kicking off Summerfest this year is hoot tapping sounds of The Elements, a Minneapolis/St. Paul-based classic rock band featuring music from the 1960s to today.  Enjoy classics songs from the Eagles, John Mellencamp, the Beatles, the Byrds, Grassroots, Pure Prairie League, CCR, Bob Seger, Doobie Bros, Van Morrison, Bad Company, Grand Funk, Poco, Big Head Todd, and more.

    The fun starts at 5:00 PM rain or shine with lots of grilled food, snacks, soft drinks, beer (craft beer too), and wine.  Bring your lawn chairs and soak up the evening sun and fun or sit in the shade under our super-sized big top tent.  Fun awaits!
