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.
In the last few weeks, we have had some wonderful weather. The temperature was in the 70's and we had very little rain. It was a great time to be outdoors with your family. Now is the time to get your house ready for winter. Mulch the leaves and provide great fertilizer for your lawn and other plants. Take down the screens and replace them with storm windows. Check your lawn mower and snow blower to determine their condition. Put away the lawn furniture for the season. Get ready for some great football games. If we are strong enough, our Milwaukee Brewers will be in the World Series this year. Support our local sports teams. Support the activities at your children's school and become a part of their education process. Take some time out to relax with your family. Please support the Bay View community.
