Chinatown Resident Association chairman Henry Yee thanked Gilbert Ho, former chairman of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, for arranging the transportation. Chinatown residents have enjoyed trolley service to the mayor’s block party for the past three years. As a senior, Yee said he enjoyed being with other Boston residents and attending Menino’s last block party as mayor.
