Riverwoods Halloween Party Moves to Deerfield Golf Club - Everyone is Invited!

September/October 2015


The ever-popular Halloween party is right around the corner and Riverwoods will once again be celebrating in grand fashion. All of Riverwoods is invited, so mark your calendars now for Saturday, October 31, 4:30-7:30pm.

New Venue This Year – Everything you have come to love; the horse-drawn wagon ride with the sing-along, making gooey s’mores, climbing on the fire truck, sitting in the police car, and enjoying pizza and hot dogs with your fellow ghosts and goblins will be in store. The only difference is that this year our Village Hall will be under construction, so we’re taking the party to the Deerfield Golf Club.

The Deerfield Golf Club, located in Riverwoods on Saunders Road, just north of the police station, offers a fine venue for our festivities. There will be plenty of space for our usual fun stations, and we may surprise you with a few additional activities. How about a mini driving range for the children to try their skill with a junior golf club? And wouldn’t a nature scavenger hunt, put on by our friends from Brushwood/Ryerson be fun?

This Village-wide party continues to grow each year since 2001 when it was founded as a safe, fun event for the children following 9/11. So plan now to be a part of this village-wide event.

Volunteers Needed – Join Our Party Committee – A fun event like this doesn’t just happen. We need people with fresh ideas and energy to pull it all together. Volunteers are needed to help plan, decorate, supervise the stations, and assist with cleanup. If you have even a few hours to spare we can use you. Please contact Jackie Borchew at 847-602-8508 orjackie@borchew.com.

Our Halloween party will take place rain or shine, so start working on your costume and come early to be the first on board the horse-drawn wagon. Boo!
