John Manke is an active former Bay View resident who is involved in numerous neighborhood organizations, including the Bay View Historical Society, the Humboldt Park Fourth of July Association and the Shore Shore Farmers Market. He believes Bay View has a fine tradition in its past that we do not want to lose in the future.
On Wednesday, October 12, 2011, the Humboldt Park Watch will hold its annual Tree Day. First grade students from nearby Bay View Schools have been invited to attend this event. There will be indoor and outdoor activities for the children. Inside, they will work with a button machine, check leaves on their charts, have special books from the Children's section of the Bay View Library read to them. Outdoors, the children will be able to see trees being planted and be given a tour of the park and shown various types of trees. They will also be allowed to view the natural animals of the park. This will be a great adventure for the children. Volunteers and County and City Staff workers will assist in this program. This event represents our park watch in action.
