The world-famous Glenn Miller Orchestra will make a return visit to Forest Lake this spring.

A Wednesday, June 6 concert has been scheduled at Forest Lake High School. The 7 p.m. performance is a fund-raising effort for the non-profit Forest Lake Area Community Scholarship Foundation.

The June 6 visit will mark the big band’s fourth appearance in Forest Lake. The band played here in 2005, 2007 and 2009 but was not available in 2011.

The CSF Board of Directors on Thursday, March 15 inked the contract to bring the band back and help in its mission of raising scholarship dollars.

The CSF program, now in its 39th year, will surpass the $1 million level for scholarship dollars awarded this spring.

The June 6th concert is an official event of the second annual Lake Fest Celebration that starts on Saturday, June 2 and continues through Friday, June 8 with the annual performance by The Rockin Hollywoods at Lakeside Park to kick off the 2012 Arts in the Park summer series.
