It was a bipartisan effort to say thank you to those who put their lives on the line.

State Representative Vanessa Guerra says a variety of free events were available Saturday, on Saginaw’s Ojibway Island, including bikes, kayaks and fishing poles.

Guerra and State Senator Ken Horn joined Congressman Dan Kildee in sponsoring the third year of the free thank you day.

The free fun day for area veterans and first responders brought a steady stream of guests to Saginaw’s popular island.
