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.
I wish to thank everyone who participated in the Tuesday Night "Chill on the Hill" Irish Night and supported the Humboldt Park Watch Corn Roast. Thanks to Patty Pritchard Thompson from The Bay View Neighborhood Association and "Chill on the Hill", we were invited to hold our annual fundraiser Corn Roast at Humboldt Park. We had several dedicated volunteers who all helped in setting up and selling the corn-on-the-cob. A special thanks to Cliff Hale for his work in preparing our work site. We all worked together to have a successful night of selling corn. Thank you to all of the volunteers who participated in this fundraiser. We hope to see you again next year.
