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.
After we have a large snow storm, we should take photos or movies of the outdoors. In the summer, when it gets very hot outside, that is the time to look at these photos and movies. They might make it a little cooler for you at that time. Now we worry about trying to travel in dangerous conditions, we should look back and see what happened now in the near future. We have a lifetime to enjoy these pictures. In the future you can say that you were here when the big storm came. The pictures will be the proof for your children and grandchildren to see. Take the kids out and let them play in the snow, but always keep them out of harm's way. Hidden rocks can hurt an unsuspecting child when he hits it head on. Cars can go out of control and also place the children in harm's way. Love your children and enjoy the best things that you can do together at this time. You will always have these moments to remember. Please support the community of Bay View.
