We had a large crowd as was expected at the Bay View Bash. We would like to thank everyone who took part in the planning and operation of the Bash. Thank you also to everyone who came to the Bash.There are too many names of people who participated and ran this event to name them all. Special thanks to all who worked on this event. The profits from this event go back into the Bay View community as grants to various non-profit organizations. For all purposes, this is a non-profit event. We had a wonderful time in the Children's Area where activities and games were there for them to play. We had a stage performance by Julie (Princess of Magic) Sobanski and Rainbow Randa (Sue Davies). There also were other performances on the Children's Area stage. We had a very large crowd at this event. The idea was for a safe and fun filled area for parents and children to enjoy. Thank you for coming to the Bay View Bash.
Get off your couches and come down and become a part of the Bay View Bash. S. Kinnickinnic Ave. will be closed from E. Pottor Ave. to S. Clement Ave. for the Bay View Bash. Join in our community celebration of the annual Bay View Bash. Most of the profits from the Bash go back into the community.

This entire area is dedicated to be for children and their parents. Come down and enjoy yourselves in this area. Just outside of the Children's Area, there will be a dog and owner parade.

As you know, schools are beginning their new session now. There have been many teacher changes this year. Some have retired and many have quit. It is very difficult to become a teacher now. The stress of having a large class and preparing lesson plans is rough on a new teacher. Some classes are unruly, and getting the class to listen to you in not always easy. The pay in the work area is much better than for a teacher. You have to be very understanding and patient to be a teacher. The National PTA has a lot of material to help both teachers and parents in understanding and helping their students and children. I can see where a new teacher has great difficulty with lesson planning and controling unruly children. After one year, many new teachers feel that it is too hard for them to continue as a teacher. Some teachers leave elementary and high school to teach in colleges. They do this to avoid all of the stress of teaching young students.
