On Saturday, June 26, 2010, The Riverside Old School Reunion held their first picnic event, which was located a Bordwell Park, our prime location.
 
They provided the music and you provided your own blankets, chairs and food to enjoy the afternoon events. High schools throughout the districts of Riverside County joined in this occasion. The event was a delightful moment, from the young and matured folks going back in time, visiting with friends that they hadn’t seen in many years.

We would like to thank the Riverside Old School Reunion Committee for doing a magnificent job. And send a shout-out (email/face book) to each and every one of them for a job well-done.
 
                                                                                                                                                                                   
Saturday evening, July 26, 2010, after the Riverside Old School Committee Reunion picnic a 
Black and White Affair was held at Ciao Bella Restaurant. As they dined and danced they honored several of the outstanding members of this community.
 
Master of Ceremony was Lisa Hancox~Zamora who put this all together, she is also part of the Riverside Old School Committee.  Among the honorees were, Mrs. Daisy Mae Boyd ( acknowledge by her son, Ricky Boyd), Aquanetta Gordon, Darlene and Wes Kriesel, Jeannie McKnight, Teresa Valentin, Richelle Shaw, Charles Bibbs, Dell Roberts, Eddie Chagolla, Frank Jones, Glen A. King, Pete Anderson, Ron E. Hansen, Ulyious Ball, James Beau and Dorella Anderson.  Special guests were Apostle Dr. Craig Ponder and Reverend Jon Scott Harris (Senior Pastor at Castle Rock, Christian Fellowship Baptist Church in San Bernardino).
