Buy a Brick Program – Buy a commemorative brick to celebrate and honor your 4-legged pal or your 2-legged skater buddy. Make your friends proud while helping to fund amenities for the new Dog and Skate Park opening mid-May 2018. We need benches, hoops, jump overs, stepping paws, and other fun exercising options. Complete this form and send it to RioVision. You may also bring the form to the Visitor Center at 33 N. 2nd St. Or, you can order and pay with credit card online at www.bricksrus.com/order/riovision/.
Trim & Tidy Program – RioVision is asking for volunteers from Rio Vista service clubs and groups to help keep Main St. Planters clean and trim. Work needs to be done quarterly throughout the year. A two-year commitment is requested. 4-6 people can complete work in 1-2 hrs. per quarter.
Visitor Center – RioVision & Rio Vista Chamber of Commerce joined to create Rio Vista Visitor Center. The Art Gallery is an added feature to benefit local artists.
Discover Rio Vista Magazine – This is a tri-annual magazine published by the RioVision Promotions and Communications team that provides information about events, activities and places of interest in and around Rio Vista.
Newspaper Column and Email Newsletters – Each week RioVision submits a 500-600 word news article, along with a Calendar of Rio Vista Events, to 3 local papers with regular weekly publication in the Rio Vista Beacon. Pictures illustrating the fruits of our volunteers’ efforts are included when available. The article highlights community events and RioVision activities, programs, and projects which support RioVision’s mission to revitalize, energize, build, and beautify the Rio Vista community, especially the downtown core area. Themes and backstories showcase the threads that drive and motivate RioVision leaders and volunteers. Our regular columnist is Carol Bower Foote of Rio Vista. Guest columnists also contribute.
Holiday Decorations – This is a multi-part project. We start putting up decorations the day after Thanksgiving. It typically takes about two weeks to get everything up.
- Banner across Main Street (at Second Street)
- Banner and Lights at the West Entrance
- Hanging ornaments (8 – 12, depending on the size of the tree) in 22 trees from City Hall to Third Street
- Light strings around 20 light poles between City Hall to Third Street
Downtown Tree Lights Maintenance – We are maintaining the lights in 16 trees on Main Street (corners of Front/First/Second/Third). We have a few ‘spotters’ who report to us any outages. Repairs are done by climbing on a ladder and replacing the string of lights.
