Rio Nido Magic by Elena Chronis

September is Upon Us

Aug 31, 2017
by Elena Chronis


September and October are the two most colorful months of the year. With Indian summer approaching we can look forward to a small stint of warm weather before the fall chill descends. I am looking forward to all the foliage turning yellow, orange and burgundy. A beautiful time of year.

Rio Nido’s Last Summer Hurrah

Its been an eventful summer here.The last RNHOA event to close out the summer festivities is on Sunday Sept. 3rd for the Labor Day Chicken BBQ. We have many new residents in Rio Nido and more vacationers have been flocking here all summer. Guess the secret is out.  Rio Nido IS the happening spot.  A big shoutout goes to Douglas Misner Pres. of the RNHOA, Beverly Bird, John Colonico and the rest of the RNHOA members for bringing smiles to all who attend the summer picnics. Pee Wee Mini Golf will be closing and opening back up next Summer.

Friends of Rio Nido (FRN)

FRN had their Community member meeting on Sunday, August 20th. There were many topics under discussion. Also, members held a Community Cleanup day on Sunday, August 27th. Folks were out and about trimming vegetation where it has been overgrown and cleaning signs and fire hydrants. Thanks for making our community shine!

National Night Out

Always a very fun time. FRN brought out a nice spread of food and beverages. Its always fun to have “Neighborhood Get togethers.” Our Sheriffs and local Firefighters came out and dined with us and answered questions and concerns.


Its great to see our Sheriffs and CHP’s driving through Rio Nido daily. Keeping us safe.

Speaking of safety, our local Firefighters were out and about on Saturday, August 27th canvassing our neighborhoods in Rio Nido for fire safety. Thanks guys!

Pet of the Month

Great Dane, PennySweet, mellow and sensitive 7 year old Great Dane Penny adores kitties and longs to be friends with them.  But sadly, most scurry away from her due to her size and species. But, not brave and adventurous Uni the kitty.  Penny and Uni met when Uni’s family moved here last year and it was love at first sniff. Finally a kitty that feels this big girls heart. Every afternoon, Penny walks from Mt. Jackson Trail to see her favorite gray Tabby on Canyon 3. From his perch, he runs toward her majestic frame with a sweet “meow” reserved only for Penny. They greet each other with warm kisses and nuzzles.
