With Great Regret....

It is with great regret and sorrow that the Township announces the passing of Committeeman John Bienkowski.  A long time resident of Riverside, Mr. Bienkowski has served in several positions with the Township, the most recent of which was as Township Committeeman.  Mr. Bienkowski will be remembered for his generosity and compassion, as well as his unmatched cackle and sideways glances.  We thank him for his service and friendship, and will miss him dearly.  Friends, old and new, are invited to celebrate his life on Saturday November 18, 2017.  Information on the services can be found in the link below.
