The Riverside Friends of the Fourth would like to thank all those who helped Riverside celebrate their annual July 4 festivities this year. Without Ron Malchiodi and his staff at the Parks and Recreation Department we would not have been able to put together such a great celebration in a shortened period of time. 

Thanks also to the police and fire departments, public works and village staff and personnel for all their support. This is an event that normally takes much planning and given a shortened time frame, we pulled it off.

To all who supported the Friends of the Fourth by purchasing a T-shirt, you all looked good while doing your part to monetarily support the celebration. 

The Friends of the Fourth are looking forward to next year when we again help our village celebrate with pride July 4, Riverside style.

Thank you again for your continued support.

Joe Ballerine, Danny Jisa, JoAnne Kosey, Rey Navarro and Ben Sells, Riverside Friends of the Fourth
