Memorial Day

Monday, May 28, 2018

Please click on the link above for details regarding Riverside's Memorial Day Ceremony.

Riverside's annual Memorial Day Program will be held on Monday, May 28, at 10:00 a.m. in the St. Mary Parish Center, 97 Herrick Road, Riverside. All veterans and family members who attend the program will be honored and recognized. All are welcome. Many Riverside organizations will participate in the program as we honor the memory of those who gave their lives in service to our county. Refreshments will be served following the program in the Parish Center.

At 1:00 p.m., following the program at St. Mary, there will be a brief outdoor ceremony at the Veterans Memorial in Guthrie Park, just south of the Riverside Train Station at 90 Bloomingbank Road. A Navy Wreath will be placed in the Des Plaines River in Honor of America's Killed In Action who were buried at sea. The American Flag will then be raised to full staff. All are welcome to attend this moving ceremony as well.

Village offices will be closed in observance of the holiday. Refuse collection will be delayed by one day this week.
