Riverview Presentation and March Meeting


Over fifty members and friends gathered early to enjoy lunch and fellowship at Fuddruckers before the start of the March meeting.

A short business meeting began at 2:15. The members approved the 2014 budget and elected three Directors- Joel Greenberg, Lloyd Schelling and Len Vinyard. We then heard about upcoming events and tours, including the CTCC "Spring Fling" weekend tour to Springfield, IL. being organized by Len and Mary Keil, an outing to White Fence Farm being arranged by Laura and Mike Cielenski and the Annual Tech-Session at the home of Bob and Sue Wenderski. Those who wished to win one of the raffle prizes donated by Madeline Zambon dropped their names into the appropriate bags.

The business meeting ended and we were treated to a presentation about Riverview Amusement Park by Ralph Lopez, who worked at Riverview from 1957 until its closing. He is currently a caretaker of its history. Following the presentation, Ralph answered questions and offered Riverview memorablilia for sale.
