Saturday, May 17th: Annual Meeting and Riverside Open House [updated]

May 15, 2008 – 2:21 pm

Friends of Historic Riverside Cemetery will be hosting our first annual members meeting on Saturday, May 17th at 10:00 am at the Holy Transfiguration of Christ Cathedral Social Hall.

Everyone is encouraged to attend this meeting – this is your chance to meet others who share your interest in increasing awareness and promoting preservation of Riverside Cemetery.

At this meeting we will vote for the first ‘official’ board of directors of our organization, and will also have an update from each of our committee chairs on activities to expect in the coming season. Our committees include Preservation and Environment, Events, Community Relations, Volunteers.

The meeting will be followed by a casual picnic and open house at Riverside starting after the meeting (approximately noon). It’s a bring your own lunch, though our board member Sandy Marvin has graciously agreed to provide lemonade.

At 1:00pm, Garry O’hara will be leading a tour of Riverside for our members. The tour should last about 2 hours, though of course you don’t have to stay for the whole thing; it’s sure to be both educational and entertaining.

Riverside is located at 5201 Brighton Boulevard in Denver. Directions to Riverside are available on our Visit Riverside Page.
