Several years ago the village of North Riverside stopped its annual fireworks show. Many neighbors were understandably disappointed, but understood the financial constraints on the village.
Last night, my husband and I decided to walk nearer to the Riverside Golf Club because we have “seen” and heard their fireworks show from our backyard for the last few years.
We were quite surprised to learn that we did not have to post our chairs on Desplaines Avenue as we fully expected to do. We were welcomed into the front area of the club with open arms.
A beautiful display of fireworks, an appreciative, well-behaved crowd and a friendly police presence provided a good time for all. I want to thank the Riverside Golf Club for being such good neighbors.
