Former Dutcher Remembered for Positive Attitude

posted Fri August 16, 2019

The Douglas Dutchers were saddened to hear of the passing of a former ballist, George “Speedy” Randall-Saldivar.  Speedy was with the club for only a few short years but will always be remembered for his vibrant spirit, beaming smile, upbeat attitude, and of course his ability to run like the wind. His young life was cut short but he will always live on in the hearts of his fellow Dutcher teammates and friends. We know that he continues to run fast and free.

The Douglas Dutchers extend a hearty “Hurrah” to The Commercial Record newspaper as they celebrate 150 years in operation.  The Commercial Record is Allegan County’s oldest newspaper in continuous publication (not counting two weeks off in 1886), through five different names and 20 different owners.  The Village (now City) of Saugatuck was incorporated in 1868, the same year The Commercial Record was founded. The Dutchers hope they will be around for many more years to come!
