In the mid-Sixties, when the area began to become more racially diverse, the Let's Get Acquainted Committee implemented the practice of holding "circle dinners". The Committee recruited equal numbers of new and long-time residents on a monthly basis and held a pot-luck dinner in the homes of the participants. This practice afforded neighbors the opportunity to meet and become better acquainted.
The purpose of the organization is to promote a harmonious and productive community without regard to ethnic, racial or religious backgrounds. The Association encourages all members and residents to participate in activities which contribute to strengthening the welfare of the community.
The Association continues to maintain a positive relationship with city officials, the police department, school officials, the State of Michigan, and the federal government. A Civilian Patrol (the name was later changed to Radio Patrol), organized in the early 1970's to assist in deterring crime in the area, is still active today.
