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.
On Memorial Day we honor those who have gone before us. Many of us, in the military service, gave their lives that we might be able to enjoy the freedom that we have today. It cost them their blood and bodies to serve and defend our country. We also should remember our friends and relatives that are no longer with us. Go to the cemetery and place a flag on those who served in the military in the past. Place flowers on the graves of those who we have loved and now are gone. Have a wonderful Memorial Day.
Please support the Bay View community.
