This Week In History

On October 1,1890, an act of Congress creates Yosemite National Park, home of such natural wonders as Half Dome and the giant sequoia trees. Environmental trailblazer John Muir (1838-1914) and his colleagues campaigned for the congressional action, which was signed into law by President Benjamin Harrison and paved the way for generations of hikers, campers and nature lovers, along with countless "Don't Feed the Bears" signs.  

Yard Waste and Recycling Drop-Off Dates

  • Tuesday, October 16 from 4 pm to 8 pm @ the sled hill parking lot
  • Tuesday, November 20 from 4pm to 8 pm @ the sled hill parking lot
Taking Back Prescription Drugs
Last Saturday the Bayside Police Department participated in the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) National Prescription Drug Take- Back Day.  The Police Department collected over 200 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs from residents.   This helps keeps prescription drugs out of the hands of children and out of our water supply.
  • Please remember you can always drop-off prescription drugs at the Bayside Police Department.
Lakefront Marathon Coming Through Bayside
The Lakefront Marathon will be coming through Bayside tomorrow.  The race starts at 7:30 am at Glendale High School.  The following roads in Bayside will be affected by the Marathon:

One Weekend, Two Events

During the weekend of October 27 and 28, Bayside will be hosting two of its most popular events:  Clean-Up Day and Fright Night.  Don't miss out on your last chance to dispose of unwanted items around the house and to have some family friendly Halloween fun with friends and neighbors after trick-or-treating.


When and Where?

  • Clean-Up Day:  Saturday, October 27 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the DCUS parking lot (enter off of Fairy Chasm).  Check out the flier to see what you can dispose of.
  • Fright Night:  Sunday, October 28 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Ellsworth Park.
  • Bayside Trick-or-Treat:  2:30 - 5:30 pm

Absentee Ballots Available at Village Hall on Oct. 22
Beginning Monday, October 22, residents may vote by absentee ballot at Village Hall.  State Statute prevents residents from voting at Village Hall prior to this date.
