On May 22, 2008, I received official commendation from the City of Detroit, awarded to me by Councilwoman Joanne Watson. It was fortuitous that one of the other city Council members, thankfully there to join us in a photo, was Martha Reeves, former lead singer of one of my all-time favorite Motown groups, Martha & The Vandellas. There was truly “Dancing in the Streets” that day for me.
