"The Plymouth Historical Museum is in the process of getting a caboose to place on the east end of the Museum (outside). The City of Plymouth has approved the variance needed, now we need to raise funds to move the caboose from the Main Street crossing to the Museum. We also will need funds to restore the caboose once it's on our property. Thanks to Don Soenen, president of PARC, we have a $10,000 match challenge. That means he will match the first $10,000 in donations for the caboose!!! Please dig deep, we're well on our way. We appreciate your support!" -Statement from the Plymouth Historical Museum
The Plymouth Historical Museum needs our help to raise $20,000 to move and restore the caboose and are shy of their goal so Dwellings by Rudy & Hall has teamed up with Kelly Brown of Guaranteed Rate to help them reach it. In the past for the Plymouth Ice Festival Dwellings by Rudy & Hall and Kelly Brown of Guaranteed Rate have teamed up to do some amazing giveaways. Everything from a family pass to the Henry Ford Museum to a Cruise for 2 to the Bahamas. This year, we wanted to give back to the city that has given us so much. A past client reached out to us asking us to donate to this amazing project and we thought this would be the perfect opportunity! So from now until Monday 1/14/19 everyone that donates to help "Save The Caboose" will be entered to win a weekend trip for two to Chicago courtesy of Dwellings by Rudy & Hall and Kelly Brown of Guaranteed Rate.
