    Wonderful weekend in Greendale.

    Come on Greendale Parade Marchers. Come up with something new. You looked a little worse for the wear.

    Where was the Greendale Band? Too busy pulling a few more bucks out of our wallets to pay for their trip to the Big Apple?

  2. Bill Kewan

    My sincere thanks to all those who volunteer to operate these community activities. Another reason Greendale is such a special place is because of the energy and commitment of these volunteers. I encourage more residents to consider volunteering at least a few hours per year to support one of the community activities, such as July 4th, Village Days, Hay Days, Dickens weekend.
