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 Saturday, May 3, 2008, from 9:00 AM to 12 Noon, the Humboldt Park Watch will have a Park cleanup. People should meet in the Humboldt Park Pavilion to start. Free tickets to Milwaukee County Attractions will be given to all participants. Scouts can also earn Community Service Badges. DOG OWNERS INVITED---bring a scoop and help. This event is sponsored by Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful, Milwaukee County Parks and Humboldt Park Watch. If you have any questions, contact Ruth Simos, Park Watch Captain at 414-483-9330. This is an annual event open to all interested people. Please join us in this project. Due to lack of funding of park staff by Milwaukee County, we have to take on this task by ourselves. Please support the Bay View community.
