Those who hear about Saginaw usually just think of it one dimensionally like Detroit or Flint: high crime.  Saginaw is a vibrant and fascinating community.  It has a lot more to offer and has some interesting facts about it as well.  Saginaw is featured in the famous song “America” by Simon and Garfunkel (American lyrics).  It is so great to hear your hometown in an iconic song by such an amazing duo.  Saginaw is also home to Saginaw Valley State University and Delta Community College both great educational institutions where one can get a high quality education.  The Saginaw soccer complex was built within the last few years that hosts all kinds of tournaments and has some 21 full-size soccer fields (News).  People from all over the state play there and the soccer fields are always full of youth and their proud parents proudly watching their children play soccer (Saginaw Soccer).  Saginaw is much more than just a city known for crime it is a great town full of vigor and life.  Real estate was on the rise in the Saginaw area but has tapered off because of the recent housing crisis.  Banks have been seeming to make a comeback in Saginaw and many have been built.  Religion is an important part of life in Saginaw.  45.99% of people said they were religious with the religious break down being: 18.10% Catholic, 0.59% are LDS and 4.11% are another Christian faith” (Google).     My family has started in this town and we were all educated there.  Three generation has successfully and happily lived in Saginaw and we have been proud to call it our home.  My family continues to live here and congregate here for all of the major holidays.  I’m glad to call it my home and am so fortunate to have grown up here.
