Bayview Daze Raffle

The Bell's, pictured above, will be playing outside at the Captain's Wheel, Saturday, the 4th

Bayview Daze wouldn't be the same without the $1000 raffle, but wait, there's more! Not only does the grand prize winner receive the Grand, but this year several lesser prizes have been added with more pouring in all the time. One such, is a half day cruise on the Mercantile's pontoon boat. The Captain's Wheel donated a $50.00 gift certificate and Ralph's Cafe, a wine basket. A few raffle tickets are still available at the Merc, Ralph's and the Captain's Wheel. Only 100 are sold, so get yours before it's too late. Drawing is right after the parade, About noon, Saturday, the 4th.

Everything appears to be set for the big day Saturday, but don't forget that the street fair will be active all day Friday, as well. The BCC will feature a lemonade stand, (deprived childhood probably) a centennial booth, where material for next year's centennial will be available. Linda Hackbarth and Peter Balbi put together a pictorial history of Bayview and surrounding areas which will be available, plus many arts and craft booths.

This year looks to be the best in a long time. Parade entries need to turn up 1st street for line up. Prior notice isn't required. Just show up around 10:00 or earlier if you want to be up front.

My Grandfather, Hubie Randall, was one of the founding fathers of the fireworks shows in bayview. It's come a long way! His cabin is across the bay from the captain's wheel. I would love to talk with you about him if you are interested. joelrandall@gmail.com
