Martin Luther King Day
For most of us, celebrating the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King is important and it’s no different, here, at the Riverside. On January 20th, we will be making joyful song with a Gospel choir to celebrate Dr. King’s birthday! The event begins at 2:30 p.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. Come along, as we sing spirituals enjoyed by Dr. King and tap into that spirit of the Civil rights movement with Gospel music of today and yesterday! We can’t wait to be clapping and rocking to those gospel songs!
Year of the Rat
This year, the Chinese New Year is represented by the Year of the Rat! Let’s paint the Riverside red, as we join in on the fun to celebrate the Chinese New Year. We will be giving out red envelopes and will be entertained with THE sights and sounds of the New Year. As most Riverside afternoon programs go, the event takes place in the Solarium at 2:30 p.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. We hope to see you there!
