2018 Day of Service – A Big Thank You!

RBHS PTO’s Day of Service is a signature event for our high school and the most publicly visible demonstration of our students giving back to the community which supports them. This event takes lots of time, money, and hard work to pull off, and we owe a debt of gratitude to lots of people for making 2018’s Day of Service a huge success.

We owe a debt of gratitude to our project site leaders who coordinated all of our work sites:

Joel Hatje, RBHS

John Kolar, Cook County Forest Preserve

Tim Kutt, North Riverside DPW

Roy Lehto, Brookfield Beautification Commission

Don Parker, Brookfield Conservation Commission

Ed Bailey and Mike Collins, Riverside DPW
