The North Coast Journal offices received a surprise visit this afternoon from some high school songbirds in the ArMack Orchestra and Madrigal Choir. The five students (sorry, we were too stunned and charmed to ask their names) delivered a "Valentune" -- a very pretty rendition of Jack Johnson's "Better Together."
Small groups of these melodious students from Arcata and McKinleyville high schools have been dispatched all over Humboldt County to serenade sweeties in honor of Valentine's Day. Proceeds support travel to festivals in (the very romantic cities of) Paris and New York. There may still be time for you to order a Valentune for your own Valentine. Call 822-5453 to find out.
(We're a bit obsessive about documenting stuff.)
