Riverwoods Loves A Halloween Party!
Call for Halloween Party Volunteers!

By Jackie Borchew

Once again this Fall residents throughout our Village will come together for our annual Halloween Party. This party, which grew out of a need to offer a safe gathering for the children of Riverwoods following the 9/11 attacks in 2001, was an idea of the moms who made up the Riverwoods playgroup. Each year since, residents of all ages have come together on the Saturday before Halloween for a Village-wide celebration.

And each year we look forward to a ride on the horse-drawn hay wagon, to sing and dance with Jinglejam Jodi, enjoy the pizza and hot dogs, show off a fun costume, and claim a spot around the campfire to create the most gooey and yummy s’mores.

Saturday, October 25 from 4:30-7:30pm, the grounds of our Village Hall will once again be filled with grandparents, moms and dads escorting action heros, fairy princesses and the ever-popular witches to enjoy the festivities.

Laughter will fill the air as the children climb onto the fire engine, sound the police alarms and just plain enjoy a good time meeting up with family and friends. This is all that this event is meant to be – a time for the residents of our Village to come together. Please plan to join us.

The planning for this year’s party has just begun. There are committees yet to be filled and much to be done to throw the biggest Riverwoods bash of the year. We’re adding some very cool decorations this year which may surprise you. But most of all, we want to hear your ideas and get you involved in the planning and on the day of the event! Call the Village Hall at 847-945-3990 and leave your name. Our planning people will be in contact with you!
