Field Trip

Don’t you still remember field trips in elementary school as the best? At Holy Name Elementary we had a bus for such occasions, and my dad still had his chaffeur’s license from his early years as a truck driver, so he always drove the bus. I thought that was so cool. His favorite destination was taking us to the Dossins Great Lakes Museum, a regional gem on Belle Isle that was recently restored to its former glory. We caught this class learning about the Diego Rivera murals, one of Detroit’s most prized artifacts. My grandparents loved the murals for the way they spoke to their lives on the factory floor.
