 CHINESE STUDENTS.  Rachel & Rowin Mulder are bringing 26

 Chinese young people to Michigan for an English language and

 American culture experience while nurturing character development

 evening July 18, and will depart for South Haven on Monday

 American family and learn more about our way of life.  Host families

 can do simple, fun activities with their student(s) on Saturday and
