High School Athletes of the Year honored by Dearborn Parks and Recreation Commission

Dearborn Mayor Abdullah H. Hammoud was one of the featured guests at the Dearborn Parks and Recreation Commission’s 69th Annual Sports Awards Ceremony, conducted June 12, 2022 in the Michael A. Guido Theater. The Mayor congratulated Elizabeth Kowalsky and Joseph Marano, both seniors at Edsel Ford High School, who were named the High School Athletes of the Year by the Dearborn Parks and Recreation Commission. Kowalsky was a standout performer with the Thunderbird basketball, soccer and volleyball teams, while Marano excelled as a member of the school’s football and wrestling teams. As the High School Athletes of the Year, Kowalsky and Marano received the Van Patrick Memorial Award, named after the late local sportscaster Van Patrick. Patrick, a Dearborn resident, was an acclaimed radio and television personality who broadcast college and professional sports—including Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions games—from the late 1940s until his death from cancer in 1974. Patrick was a member of the Dearborn Parks and Recreation Commission and a long-time supporter of the Dearborn Parks and Recreation Department.

Dearborn Youth Theater presents Beauty and the Beast

Dearborn Youth Theater presents Beauty and the Beast at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center. The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

Performance dates are July 29, 7 p.m., and July 30, 1 and 7 p.m. For tickets, call (313) 943-2354 or visit https://www.dearborntheater.com/events/10004765-disney-beauty-and-the-beast
