Castle Museum Recognized at Saginaw PRIDE Annual Meeting
The Castle Museum of Saginaw County History was awarded the Good Neighbor award by PRIDE (Positive Results in a Downtown Environment) at its Annual Meeting on March 13, 2013. The Good Neighbor Award is presented to businesses, organizations and people in the City of Saginaw that have demonstrated significant contributions to the city and the Saginaw Community.
The Museum was recognized for its contribution to the community, to Saginaw and its commitment to
continually improve the Museum.
“The Castle Museum has partnered with PRIDE on many
projects benefiting the Saginaw Community including
Friday Night Live, Holidays in the Heart of the City and the Annual Christmas Parade,” said Jeanne Conger,
coordinator at PRIDE in Saginaw. “Working together, we are seeing growth in our urban core and the revitalization of downtown Saginaw.”
More than 1,000 adults and children enjoyed cookies at
Holidays in the Heart of the City this year and nearly 1,500 came to the Christmas at the Castle festivities. Castle employees and volunteers walked in the parade handing out the invitations for the party, which is a free event taking place after the Annual Christmas Parade.
“We are looking forward to a strong future for Saginaw and the Great Lakes Bay Region. The Castle Museum is a perfect example of those that are contributing to that future,” Conger said.
The Castle Museum is proud to be a part this community and help others recognize the importance of taking pride in Saginaw.
