Friends of Riverside is a neighborhood association whose primary goal is to build a sustainable and resilient neighborhood. We are residents, renters, property owners, business owners with an understanding that living, working or owning in the Friends of Riverside Neighborhood brings with it a responsibility to come together, utilize our varied views, knowledge and unique experiences to shape and help enrich our community.
We meet at local restaurants or businesses to eat, drink, hang out, and show our support for local businesses. This also allows neighbors to get to know one another in an informal setting. Click on the "Calendar" tab at the top of the page to verify location and time.
Our monthly meetings are held on the last Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM. Every month we meet at a different business or church in our community where we discuss topics of local interest and have speakers from the public and private sector. Check calendar for topics, speakers, and location.
