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 remember those who have given their all for us. Freedom is not cheap. Remember all of our military service people, who sacrifice their lives to protect us from harm and keep our freedom safe. There will be a Memorial Day parade downtown today. At various cemeteries, there will be services to remember all who have served to protect us and our freedom. Today is more than a day for picnics and parties. Reflect on the past and prepare for the future. There will always be wars. Somebody has to serve to protect us. Think postively, and honor our people in service. Hope that all wars will be over, but know that this is impossible. Enjoy Memorial Day with your family and friends.
Please support the Bay View community.
