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.

Newspaper Column and Email Newsletters – The fourth week of each month RioVision submits a news article to the Beacon and Daily Republic. Weekly we submit a Calendar of Rio Vista Events to the papers.Pictures highlighting our volunteers’ efforts are included when available.The article provides information about 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.
