Home of the Month
We are bringing back Home of the Month. This award is our neighborhood's way of acknowledging Riverside neighbors who take pride in their homes and property. Winners proudly display a sign in their yard for a whole month!
We need nominations. Make sure to include the address :)
Art in the Park
Why do we have the circle of dirt at Garfield Park? Yes, there is a reason! It is for a piece of art, our very own Riverside Story Pole. Neighbors can participate.
The Story Pole will portray Riverside’s rich industrial history from canoe and boats on the river, lumber mills, railroad and heavy industries all made out of scrap metal. It will recognize the rich contributions of the people who worked to support these industries, where families were raised, food was grown, and neighbors gathered for recreation.
Story Pole- how to help
Have scrap metal hanging around. We need to start collecting scrap metal so the artist can create a design.
For now, take picture of your scrap metal and send it to us e-mail HERE.
We do not have room to hold all the potential donations so we are asking you to hold on to your prospective donation until the artist identifies it as something they would like to use.
Process for creating Story Pole
We have received a grant for this first phase which enables us to work with an artist on the design.
In order to create the design, we need some idea of scrap metal pieces people have lying around. We also have contacted Public Works!
Once we have the design, we will seek more grant funding to actually build the art piece and have it installed.
If you would like to Donate to help us complete this project, you can donate HERE.
