Castle Museum Receives 2 Prestigious Grants 1-17-2011

The Castle Museum of Saginaw County History has received grants from two major organizations -- Dow Corning and the Smithsonian Institution.
Officials said the $5,000 grant from the Dow Corning Donor Advised Fund through the Saginaw Community Foundation is targeted for History on the Move, a mobile museum and classroom that is available for free to all schools in Saginaw County.
The interactive program allows children in grades 2-5 to learn about the field of archaeology and how an archaeologist works.
The Smithsonian Institution awarded a $5,000 community grant to assist the Museum in creating a local companion exhibit for Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, which is opening at the Castle on May 21, 2011.
“We are honored to have been chosen for these grants,” executive director Ken Santa said. “These grants will assist the Museum in continuing to bring engaging, interactive and educational programs to the Great Lakes Bay Region.”
The Castle Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
