Sturges-Young Civic Center & Auditorium Sturgis, MI
(STURGIS) – A very special movie had its world premiere Friday evening.
Approximately 400 people attended the showing of “At The Depot”, which shares the story about moving the historic Sturgis train depot from it's long time location on Main Street to it's new home on West Chicago Road.
Writer, Director and Producer Mike Mort says in addition to premiering the moving, the evening was also a kick off to a fund raising campaign by the Sturgis Historical Society. Mort, who is the President of the Historical Society, says all the money raised will go towards creating an interactive museum about Sturgis in the Depot building.
Copies of "At The Depot" are on sale for $20. All proceeds go towards the museum project.
In addition the Historical Society is doing a brick fundraising event. If you would like to purchase a brick or just make a donation, you can do so on line at the Sturgis Museum website. Click Here.
