This Week in History 

On May 6, 1937, the German airship Hindenburg, the largest dirigible ever built, explodes as it arrives in Lakehurst, New Jersey. Thirty-six people died in the fiery accident that has since become iconic, in part because of the live radio broadcast of the disaster.

Thought for the Week 

"The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it."


-- Henry David Thoreau  


Assessing the Village
Accurate Appraisals LLC, the Village's assessing firm, will be conducting home assessments in the Village beginning the week of May 21.  The area that will have walk thru inspections this year will be from E. Bay Point, E. Brown Deer, E. Crocker, E. Donges, and E. Fairy Chasm. They will also be inspecting homes involved with building permits, splits and sales. Please note that there may be more home areas selected once they have completed the query for field work.

All the properties selected for inspection will receive a letter from Accurate Appraisal asking them to make an appointment for a specific time for the walk thru.


Hey Cupcake

As a reminder, the Cupcake Run is tomorrow, May 12.  Online registration is now closed, but residents can register tomorrow beginning at 7:30 am at Bayside Middle School, 601 E. Ellsworth Lane.   


The 5K run begins at 9:00 am and the 2 mile walk begins shortly after at 9:05.  Please plan your travel routes accordingly, as some Village streets will be affected by the run.  Proceeds from the event go to benefit our local schools. Click here for more information.   

Thank you Bayside from the Kahn Family 
The Kahn Family of 9141 N. Rexleigh Drive, who experienced a house fire on April 12, contacted the Village to express a heartfelt thank you to all the generous Bayside residents who donated money for them at the April 21 Clean-Up Day event.  The family is simply overwhelmed by the generosity of the community.  Village residents donated $1,148.00 to the Kahn Family. 

This generosity and outpouring of support for a resident in need exemplifies that it is the caring people of Bayside that truly make this a great place to live.  Once again on behalf of the Kahn Family, thank you to all the Bayside residents who gave and kept the Kahn Family in their thoughts.

Go back even further into Bayside history with this aerial photograph (date unknown) showing the old golf course that is now the Broadmoor Subdivision area.  The intersection in the lower left hand corner is now N Regent Road and Fairy Chasm.
