Annual Alumni Picnic


Annual All Class Picnic

The annual All-Class Alumni Picnic is always held the second Saturday of every August. Unfortunately, the Sixth Annual Alumni Picnic, scheduled for August 8, 2020, has been cancelled. But we have already reserved our sites and made our plans for August 14, 2021!

On August 14, 2021, please note the new locations! We plan at 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. with an unguided tour of Riverside High School. Visit your old classrooms, the gym and locker rooms, the choir room, and even the stairwells! Other points of interest that will be available are the Field House, the new football stadium and the Veterans’ Memorial that are all located in the same area by the football stadium.  Students and alumni association members will be available to answer your questions. Enter the school through the Riverside Board of Education doors on the Northern side of the building.  Registration will be in the lobby at that location only.

At 11 a.m., we plan to migrate to the Lake County History Center grounds next to the high school (the old Lake County Home). We will be using their recently renovated barn with air conditioning and indoor restrooms. At noon is the potluck lunch followed by the official program. Then we are invited, free of charge, to visit the museum in the main building. The grounds will be open until 5 p.m. for our event.

The program will include a raffle, recognition of military veterans, audience participation and more!  Bring your stories and memories to share with everyone. Anyone who has attended or worked at Riverside High School is welcome to attend.

This is a potluck lunch.  You may drop off food that needs refrigeration at the History Center’s Event Barn prior to visiting the Riverside campus. The association provides the paper products, serve ware and water. PLEASE REGISTER so we have a good headcount for the supplies.

We would like to have a variety of food for the potluck lunch and we ask that you bring a dish to pass in certain categories:

  • If your last name begins with A-H, please bring an appetizer.
  • If your last name begins with I-S, please bring a side dish or meat dish.
  • If your last name begins with T-Z, please bring a dessert.

We will open the RSVP form in the summer of 2021. When it is open, you can submit the form, or print off the form and mail it to Riverside Alumni Association, 585 Riverside Drive, Painesville, Ohio 44077. You can also e-mail the committee chairperson, Loretta Vandervort, at rnvandie@aol.com .

Join us for another great gathering in 2021 Many classes are represented, and often class reunions are organized around this date. Yours should be too.
