The Bay View Historical Society Annual Dinner
Saturday, April 28th, 2018
– South Shore Yacht Club –

Come at 5:30 for the music, a raffle of water-themed items, socializing and cash bar.  Dinner, awards and John Gurda presenting “Milwaukee: A City Built on Water.”  Cost is $50.

Join us for a lovely evening of friendship, honoring  community members, and dining on Lake Michigan.   This year’s theme is “A Gathering by the Water,”  a very fitting title for our always wonderful annual dinner location. According to A Short History of Milwaukee by William George Bruce, the name Milwaukee comes from an Algonquian word Millioke meaning “Good”, “Beautiful” and “Pleasant Land” or “Gathering place by the water.” Hence this year’s theme, “A Gathering by the Water.” The logo design was inspired by board member Robert Lenz’s flag of Milwaukee. Thanks, Bob!

Milwaukee rock star historian John Gurda will headline the evening’s activities, who will present his program “Milwaukee: A City Built on Water.”  John’s talks are always filled with great facts from the past as well as wonderful wisdom for the future. His talk about water resonates with current concerns about the precious ecosystem that we interact with in life, work and play.
