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.
I urge all of you to visit the Beulah Brinton House, 2590 S. Superior Street, for the installation on its front lawn done by Discovery World and Bay View High School students. It is truly spectacular and you will learn so much about Bay View's History. The students and Discovery World staff will be collecting historical and archaeological information about Bay View from the general public. Activities will include portrait photography, oral history, genealogy, artifacts and heirloom documentation. Dates for these sessions are Saturday, July 31, 10 AM to 2 PM;
Opening Reception, Sunday, August 1, 10 AM to 2 PM, Saturday, August 14, 10 AM to 2 PM, and Saturday, August 21, 10 AM to 2 PM. This display will be on the lawn of the Beulah Brinton House from July 31 to September 5 -- so come and bring your histories and your stuff. It is really worthwhile. When all of this information has been gathered and digitalized by the students, it will be given to the Historical Society for our archives. Please tell everyone you know about this program.
