The annual Senior Citizen Prom was held at Heartland Nursing Center in Dearborn Heights March 25 and it was a dressy affair with professional entertainment by Damon Shaw, formerly of the Platters. Resident Virginia Premo and staff member Nancy Bergeron admire Damon Shaw as he sings during the Senior Citizen Prom at Heartland Nursing Center in Dearborn Heights.

The start for the kids’ event of the Martian Marathon Saturday includes students from several of Dearborn’s elementary schools. The annual event at Ford Field drew 1,000 young runners who ran 25 miles in segments over the past weeks, then raced the last mile at the race. The growing event attracted over 7,000 serious adult runners for the marathon, a half marathon and five and 10 K races out Hines Drive and back.
