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.
July is the time to take your family on a nice vacation. If your finances are too tight, then visit local parks or lakes and relax with your family. This is the month that we have the most heat waves and thunderstorms. Be ready to move if you hear the sirens going off at the fire stations. You could be in the area of a tornado that is being formed. If you have your dog with you, try to get it away from lightning and thunder. Thunder can cause a dog to escape and run away from you. If you go to a small lake or to Lake Michigan, get a fishing license, or the game warden will be on your back. Take the time to relax and get away from modern appliances. This peace and calm can do wonders for your health. I hope that you have a great vacation.
Please support the Bay View community.
