Members of the Riverside Junior Woman’s Charity gathered to cut the ribbon on a newly spruced up Patriots Park in Riverside on July 16. The organization adopted flower beds at the park last year and have continued to landscape and maintain the beds through their community garden committee with the support of the Riverside Department of Parks and Recreation and Department of Public Works. Patriots Park is located on Parkway Road along the village’s northern border. Among those on hand for the ribbon cutting were (from left) Melissa Porter, Christine Long, Elizabeth Kos, Riverside Parks and Recreation Board Chairwoman Katie Leander, Elke Liewald, Mary Kay Javors, Amy Carnahan, Jill Mateo and Gretchen Reyes.
