Riverview Throws a Party... For Itself

For several months now, people have brought the party to Riverview.

On Wednesday, July 13, 2011, Riverview returned the favor and brought the party to the people.

This year's Riverview Block Party was a special one. It's the first celebration of the homes at Riverview Place, the new dwellings that replaced the historic Riverview Apartments that came down two years ago.

Of course, the children of Riverview had a blast!

There were hamburgers, hot dogs, baked beans, chips and plenty of covered dishes to go around.

What wasn't available to the kids, they improvised on their own. Tossed footballs became the norm as they made the most of getting together with their friends.. Papa John's Pizza offered pizzas as prizes for whomever could toss a bean bag through the right hole.

And what better way to shed those extra pounds than a line dance.. the kids went ahead and formed one, not waiting for the adults.

Area agencies also stopped by with booths and exhibits, from the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure, the Sullivan County Regional Health Department and United Health Care.

All in all, a wonderful event celebrating the rebirth of Riverview, rapidly becoming what we have always known it as: a great place to live and raise a family!
