March Events on the River

Feb 28, 2018
by Beth Rudometkin


Ahhh, Spring is almost here! Don’t you just love the Spring? New beginnings, growth, fresh and brightness! Which leads me to my groovy and exciting news: After close to 12 years, I am no longer working at Community First Credit Union! I have been hired by Pinnacle Capital Mortgage to open their beautiful, new branch located at 16190 Main Street, Suite C; right across the street from the Plaza, next door to Russian River Realty. This location seemed best to suit your needs, as it is ground level, has easy access and is located smack dab in the middle of Zephyr Real EstateMillar and Co.Vanguard Properties and Russian River Realty. And let’s not forget Berkshire Hathaway Home Services which is just a short stroll down Main Street! You may recognize the name, Pinnacle Capital Mortgage, as our very own Hans Bruhner, The Loan Guy, also writes a column for this groovy newspaper. If you have any local events, fundraisers, anything you would like to share with our groovy community, please feel free to pop in and say hello or call me at 707-604-7542! And of course, if you are wanting to refinance your home or need to get pre-approved to purchase a home in our beautiful area,call me! I now have additional loan options available, faster turn times on appraisal/loan contingency removals and no rate lock restrictions! I have close to 30 years of experience to offer you and the best customer service in the county!

On to your local groovy happenings coming up. First Friday Artwalk is on the 2nd and is going to be extra special with all of our local artists and crafters displaying their groovy works. Follow the balloons and chalk art on the sidewalks throughout downtown Guerneville. Russian River Chamber of Commerce Mixer will be held on Wednesday the 14th at Paul Mathew Vineyards Tasting Room in Graton. This get-together is open to business members, invited guests and prospective members as great way for you to interact with your new Chamber Board of Directors and local merchants/business owners. And at the same time, enjoy some yummy treats and fabulous wine! Be sure to go to to purchase your bingo tickets in advance for Saturday, March 10th’s fundraiser for our groovy local schools!

The Russian River Sisters beneficiary for March will be the New Horizon School Culinary Program & Monte Rio School Student’s Garden. Monday, March 5th at the Rio Theater in Monte Rio the Russian River Chamber of Commerce is hosting a “Sheriff’s Candidate Forum” for business members and invited guests; the moderator will be our very own Vesta, owner/editor of Sonoma County Gazette! While I am on the subject of Monte Rio, be sure to experience Curtain Call Theatre located at 20347 Hwy 116! March 2 – March 24 they are presenting The West Coast Premier of The Language of Flowers by Gavin Kayner and director Michael Tabib. It is a “hauntingly beautiful play” and if you have never had the pleasure of attending this theatre, it is a must! Go to or call 707-524-8739.

Another great Monte Rio offering is yoga! Be sure to visit Kathleen at There are numerous classes of all levels available at the Community Center! It’s never too soon to begin forming your groovy golf team to participate in the 18th Annual Golf Tournament, Fireworks Fundraiser, to be held on Friday, May 4th! This is a benefit for the Monte Rio Fireworks, sponsored by the Monte Rio Chamber of Commerce. Come and see me for an entry form at the local Guerneville Branch of Pinnacle Capital Mortgage or email me at Again, thank you groovy Guerneville for your continued support and I look forward to our new adventure together!
