To the members of our dear Riverside,
A long winter it has been, and much time we've bide.
Fret no longer, with drinks a plenty,
We'll celebrate our annual Summer entry.
I speak, to the Kick-off Barbecue,
An event, it feels, is long overdue.
On Saturday, the 8th of June,
All are invited, 'till the rising of the moon.
With all well and good, we'll have an early start,
Door's open at 4, even for the kids that are smart.
Rumor has it, that is in the works,
A Brews Crews appearance on the horizon lurks!
Regarding the drink and the barbecue fare,
All will be provided, but feel welcome to share!
To the U23's and those not of age,
Be mindful not to incur lawful rage.
As prose be not optimal to information convey,
Ask to me direct, any questions that you may.
Any the way, let us all amass,
To begin a summer, that'll surely kick ass.
Interested in joining Riverside?

The Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup brings together over 3,000 volunteers each year to pick up litter, remove invasive species and assist with park maintenance. Residents are drawn to the popular Charles River Cleanup from a desire to give back to their community while enjoying the beauty and wildlife along the Charles River. Volunteers build on the connections they establish during this day of stewardship by returning to the Charles to exercise, play and enjoy nature throughout the year.
The Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup builds on a national effort as part of American Rivers’ National River Cleanup®, which to date, has removed over 25 million pounds of trash from America’s waterways. In 2016, 2017, and 2018 the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup was recognized by American Rivers for the Most Volunteers Mobilized and Most Pounds of Trash Collected.
