Event Details:
The beautiful 1904 Toledo Harbor Lighthouse will be the topic of a 7 p.m. talk Thursday, Aug. 8, at the Toledo Yacht Club. The history of Maumee Bay's lighthouses will be discussed by Sandy Bihn, president and founder of the Toledo Harbor Lighthouse Preservation Society. When the Toledo lighthouse was built on a crib five miles north of what's now Maumee Bay State Park, the zig-zagged shipping channel into Toledo was straightened.
 
The four-story, 4,000-square-foot structure is owned by the society. The Ohio Department of Transportation and Lucas County are expected this year to authorize bids for a $500,000 phase one restoration project that will be buttressed by a $138,000 private match.
 
Ms. Bihn's talk will be followed by a round-table discussion on the health of Lake Erie at the monthly meeting of the Lake Erie Waterkeeper organization. Toledo Yacht Club is at 3900 N. Summit St. Information: www.lakeeriewaterkeeper.org
