The Riverside Village Board of Trustees on June 15 recognized the many years of service of Diane Ceragioli, a longtime member of the Riverside Historical Commission who has retired after serving in that capacity for 18 years.

Ceragioli joined the commission in 2005, volunteering to staff the historical museum on Saturday mornings and organized fundraisers for the restoration of both the east and west well houses in Centennial Park, which now house archival materials and exhibits.

She also assisted in the purchase of an exhibit case for the Riverside Public Library where artifacts from the museum’s collection are displayed on a rotating basis.

Trustee Aberdeen Marsh-Ozga, a former member of the Riverside Preservation Commission, presented Ceragioli with a certificate of appreciation and plaque.

“It been a pleasure,” Ceragioli said. “I’ve enjoyed it so much and it’s such a wonderful village.”
