of the Lakes"
with Ric Mixter
The Saginaw Bay has been guarded by various lifesavers over the years, and the advent of power
boating only increased the need for a rescue team situated in one of the trickiest channels on the lakes. Ric Mixter shares
some of the difficulties in year-round rescue on the Bay- with rare footage and interviews from the men stationed at the Saginaw
River Range Light. Ric will chronicle the history of the light from 1831 to present and showcase some of its proudest
moments- including the Jupiter disaster. Join
us as Second Saturday begins its 10th year!
