The circa 1876 Indian River Lifesaving Station is the second- oldest lifesaving station on the East Coast still on its original site, and thus one of the most valuable maritime historic sites in the na- tion. For nearly a century - first as a lifesaving station and later as a U.S. Coast Guard Station - the sta- tion served as a home for men who routinely risked their lives to save those in peril on the turbulent seas off the Delaware coast. The commemorative bricks be- ing auctioned depict a few of these men and their actions. To register a bid on any or all of these works of art on original Indian River Lifesaving Station artifacts, stop by the station gift shop during its regular hours - from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday, Nov. 27 to Dec. 24. Winners will be notified by phone on Dec. 24, just in time for Christmas-giving. For more information, call 227- 6475. No bids will be taken by phone. The museum, historic site and gift shop are located on Route 1, one mile north of Indian River Inlet.
