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.

We are very close to the end of year 2012, and will celebrate the coming of a new year. Plan your activities so that you drink reponsibly and honor your family. Treat your children to a small party or go yourself to an adult party while you hire a babysitter. Drive safely, because there might be ice on the road and you could have an accident. Make all of your plans ahead of time so that you are prepared for the day's activity. Buy any supplies that you will need for the holiday. If you are having a party at your house, prepare for how much food and drink you will need. Have a good time and relax.
