The Greendale Village Board voted yesterday to move Greendale Parks and Recreation's Open Market from the Municipal Parking Lot to Broad Street. The Open Market begins June 23 and is held every other Saturday through Oct. 20. The move will require closing off Broad Street.

Greendale Park and Recreation's 12 annual Father/Daughter Dance sported a Hawaiian theme.
There are three meanings for the Hawaiian word aloha: hello, goodbye and love. On Friday, March 31 some lucky girls had a date night with dad, grandpa, uncle, or brother during the Greendale Park and Recreation’s 12th annual Father Daughter Dance.
