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.
We are going to have our regular March meeting of the Humboldt Park 4th of July Association on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 7 PM, in the park pavilion. We are in need of more members to help us keep our Independence Day celebration move forward. We could use the fresh input of new members and new ideas to make our organization stronger. We have done this celebration since 1910 and would like to continue it into the future. Please consider becoming a member and being part of a good organization. Help more families have the chance to celebrate Independence Day at Humboldt Park. We have a morning parade, morning games, bicycle-tricycle-coaster wagon-doll buggy decorating contest, afternoon parade for the children, talent show, evening program, fireworks, music on the side stage, Dancing with Woofs program, Rainbow Randa, and an afternoon dance contest. These activities need lots of members to help keep this work operational. We do all of this for the children and their families to enjoy the greatest local park program in Milwaukee. Become a member and help us in the organization and planning of each 4th of July celebration at Humboldt Park. We welcome your input and suggestions.
