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.

On this weekend, we take the time to remember those who have served in our military and have given up their lives so that we could enjoy the freedoms that we share today. You should thank the people in our military, for giving up their time and lives that we might live. Freedom is not cheap. Many have died trying to serve our country. Do not forget them. Honor those who have served and defended our freedom. Thank you to all who have served our country in the military service. Take the time on Memorial Day to reflect on those who served our country and have passed on to their reward. May the Lord be with them, now and forever.
