The River Road Improvement Corporation (RRIC) board of trustees invited the recently retired board members to celebrate their many years of service to the organization. Many of the current members and three retired members met for a breakfast event at the Empress Diner. Organized in 1995, the RRIC is a private/public partnership to organize, plan and implement the economic and physical improvement of River Road and the community of Fair Lawn.

The retired members, Barbara Simon, Irving Kleinberg and Doug Kuiken, were all founding members offering over two decades of their time, treasure and talent to the community and to the organization. Richie Noorigian, also a founding member and second generation business and property owner raised in Fair Lawn, presented each recipient with a small token of appreciation for their long service and contributions.

Ms. Simon, a former corporate representative from Medco Merck and later a marketing director at the American Heart Association and longtime resident of Fair Lawn gave countless marketing advice and participated in expanding the RRIC’s special events programming. Mr. Kleinberg, the founder and owner of Amber Cycle, a fixture for many of the families and children in Fair Lawn for over 40 years and resident of Fair Lawn provided support in meeting the challenges of changing times, and maintaining a healthy vital community.

Mr. Kuiken, a third generation owner of Kuiken Brothers Company, a long time residential and commercial building materials supplier on River Road, was one of many who represent the private/public partnership in implementing the RRIC’s recommendations for improving the River Road District. In addition to the presentation of plaques expressing appreciation for their leadership and service, each recipient and several attending board members offered memories of their service and commitment to Fair Lawn and to River Road and acknowledged the continued improvements to the district’s economic development and commercial contributions to residents and property owners of Fair Lawn.
