Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be able to gather for our customary Memorial Day program in Riverside this year; however, we can still honor our fallen and take time to reflect on the sacrifices made by all who have served this country and our community.

Riverside TV has put together a video compilation featuring highlights from Memorial Day programs held in the past and it will premier at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, May 25.  The program will be available on Comcast/Xfinity Channel 6, AT&T U-Verse Channel 99 (throughout the state of Illinois) and the Riverside TV YouTube and Facebook channels.
