    As part of the Historic Boston Edison community outreach, $1,499  from the Holiday Home Tour proceeds were donated to the renowned Detroit School of Arts (DSA). This year the students of Vision Male Ensemble, Concert Choir, and Vocal Jazz have been invited to sing at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Martin Luther King Jr. Monument as a part of the We Have a Dream Choral Festival, a celebration in honor of the 60th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" Speech. Thecost per student is $1,499 which includes their transportation, lodging, meals, sightseeing including the Frederick Douglass Historical Sight and the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, and more.

    Over the years, DSA Vision Male Vocal Ensemble has performed at several HHT VIP Galas as well as a HBEA Children’s Concert for a modest donation.  They have consistently not only performed for HBEA, but also many major events in the city of Detroit, South Africa among others.

    How can you help their Dream come true?   Consider donating to support these talented students.

    Checks can be made to Detroit School of Arts, memo DSA Vocal DC Trip. Cash Donations can be sent to Detroit School of Arts, Attention: DSA Vocal Dept.

    Council President Mary Sheffield hosted a guided walking tour, by The District Detroit, Olympia Development and Related organizations for community leaders of Detroit District 5. This event was an opportunity to learn how the contributions of these organizations have impacted our community and more specifically, our District. The tour included a first stop at WSU mike Ilitch School of Business, followed by a visit to The Eddystone (a 92-unit apartment). The tour also included a visit to Little Caesar Arena (LCA) and ended at Little Caesar’s Headquarters.

    This was a very valuable opportunity for community leaders as it fostered engagement and knowledge sharing at another level and allowed us to speak with those who are actively building in our beloved city and District. This tour sets up the initial foundations of community engagement by which we can have the connection and continue the conversations to ensure with every step, progress and forward movement, the community/Detroiters are the center of thought.

    I attended this tour event along with Katherine Allen, HBEA Treasurer. We give hats off to Council President Mary Sheffield for organizing this tour opportunity and always having her constituents in mind!

    On April 1, the US Census Bureau released the census forms from the 1950 census. The census listed the names and occupations of all residents, including children and servants.

    If you're interested in who lived in your house in 1950, visit the 1950 census site and search, or use our "research your home" page to find a direct link to the forms for your block. Links to earlier census data are also included.
