PRSSA Promotes the Stroud Mansion and Monroe Historical Society during Stroud Fest
September 3, 2016 (Stroudsburg, PA) – The PRSSA chapter of East Stroudsburg University joined with the Stroud Mansion and the Monroe Historical Society to invite Stroud Fest attendees to participate in Olde Time Fun. Activities included arts & crafts, storytelling, face painting, and a live musical performance by the Pocono Dulcimer Club. Stroud Fest, hosted on September 3, annually allows for many local business and organizations to introduce themselves to the community.
Stroud Mansion is located at the end of Main Street, away from the center of the downtown crowd, so many community members were previously unaware of the activities the Mansion had available. Chapter members passed out flyers and spoke to Stroud Fest goers about the Mansion and encouraged involvement in Olde Time Fun. Using their strong marketing and communication skills, PRSSA was able to assist in rallying a large crowd of adults and children at the Mansion.
Margot Vagliardo from the Stroud Mansion and Monroe County Historical Association Education Committee, told PRSSA, “your work in recruiting Stroud Fest visitors to try out Olde Time Fun really made a big difference in the number of adults and children who came to the Mansion! We really appreciate your endeavors.”
All organizations involved were thrilled by the success and enjoyed the opportunity to continue utilizing their community-bound relationship.
