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 March, our weather can be very unstable and unpredictable. On certain days we can fly kites due to the strong winds that frequently are there. If it is warm enough, we can practice soft ball or go golfing. Thunder storms can come very quickly in spring. If you have a small little green house, you will be able to start planting some of your seeds. Sometimes, just placing a storm window over a box filled with soil will give you enough heat to start your plants growing. As it warms up, you can rake your grass and remove any leaves or small amounts of foreign materials that have come over the winter. Don't put away your winter things too early. If you do, you will be in for a big surprise when the weather suddenly changes. Proceed with caution, and enjoy the month of March.
