We at the Rio Nido Lodge are sad that we are closed for this summer. The flood was not our friend and came at the most inopportune time. But Rio Nido Roadhouse is open and well so head on there. Many of you have been asking me about the Lodge and what is going on. Well, no need to fret. Currently plans are under way and we should have some good news for everyone in the upcoming months. Just be patient, good things go to those who wait as I always say and the Lodge will resurrect,.  Stay tuned for more exciting news!

Members of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Dept., Russian River Fire Protection District, and California Highway Patrol will be at the August 6 events to greet community members, families, and children. Attendees will also get to view a fire engine, patrol cars, and learn how to communicate with others via ham radios.

The Rio Nido Roadhouse is up and running. It is super nice inside. A ton of work has been going on since the flood. Fortunately Brad and Raena have a great following and many contributions have been made to get the RNR open in time for summertime FUN!  Please show your support, come on down, enjoy some good food, beverages and listen to some music. Lovin' the Community of Rio Nido.

The February flood was huge. It certainly devastated our area. No one really anticipated it being as big as it was. We always hear of Mill St and the Armstrong Woods area flooding, but this one was certainly a shocker. What I find most interesting is that the County alerted residents in Guerneville to evacuate but did not alert residents of Rio Nido to evacuate. For some inexplicable reason we were not EVEN on the list. I wonder how this happened? BIG, BIG mistake. Rio Nido Lodge: The RN Lodge is still standing. However, it did take in quite a bit of water.

It's a big deal on The River. The Lower Russian River area has wanted a voice of influence at the Board of Supervisors and now, thanks to Fifth District Supervisor Lynd Hopkins, the first public meeting will be held February 25 at Guerneville Elementary School. The public is welcome and encouraged to be involved in making decisions about the present and future of the Lower River Communities which extend from Forestville to Cazadero/Duncans Mills.
