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 winter, after we finished our fun in the snow, we would love to go indoors for some hot chocolate and a few barbecued hamburgers. This food was very refreshing to us. A little heat and a good hot meal made our day. We might have gone sled riding or riding on a toboggan. These activities continued as we got older, but hot chocolate and barbecued hamburger was still our snack food. As we got older and were with other couples, we still continued winter fun. When we had children, we would take them to enjoy some outdoor winter activities. These memories will be with us forever.
