Every year in River Forest a large group of people make the Memorial Day Parade happen. Today we want to say thank you to the smaller all-volunteer group that comes together every Memorial Day to cook and serve the picnic. Some come early at 7 in the morning to raise the tent, some come for only an hour, and some come for the entire day. Some have been helping out longer than others have been alive. Together we have a lot of fun and we help make River Forest special. 

I’d like to also thank some of the organizations that supply the majority of the volunteers: Boy Scout Troop 65, Boy Scout Troop 66, and Cub Scout Pack 67. Their energy is infectious.
