I would like to thank Les Johns and the Bay View Lions Club for their great effort in giving us the South Shore Frolics this year. It took a lot a work on the part of Les Johns to obtain the needed funding necessary to produce the South Shore Frolics. Lynn Graziano, Marlene Stevens, the Brower Family and all of the other Lions Club members who came to the aid of this group. Nancy Finch did a great job on the Frolics parade on Saturday. The amount of work and volunteers needed to have such an event is unbelievable. Without the sponsors, none of this would be possible. We the people of the Bay View community should take the time to thank all of these people responsible for this great weekend. Three cheers to the local Lions Clubs for their support of this event. It would be helpful if more people gave to the Lions Club to support the South Shore Frolics. Any help is welcome.
