President's Message


were cooked up for everyone, and S’mores roasting was
another big hit. I want to thank PNC Bankfor sponsoring
the outdoor movie, the quality of which was theater-like.
New this year was the Rio Vista Hunt--part scavenger hunt
and part puzzle--woven into our neighborhood parks.
Catherine Sturmanand Peter Brandshowed off their acting
skills in the "skit clues" with critical acclaim. And Nancy
and I now have new nicknames within the neighborhood.

For fans of our annual Concours d’ Rio Vista Car Show
I have some good news. Ted Bertoletthas once again
agreed to chair this for 2015. The popular annual
antique/sports car show will take place at the end of
Ponce on Sunday, April 12. Other upcoming planned
events include a neighborhood-wide yard sale this 
spring, as well as a series of outdoor movies in the 
park. The City's St. Patrick's Day Parade will take place
Saturday, March 14. For more details and to confirm the
date and time please refer to our website…or see the
Mayor’s Message.

Congratulations to Mayor Jack Seiler, who was elected to
another 3 year term on February 10. Congrats also go out
to our very own Romney Rodgers who was unopposed and
will be serving another 3 years as our City Commissioner.

If you haven't tried it by now, you must take a ride on the
new River Trolley. Rio Vista's closest stop is a short walk to

Stranahan Park (on top of the tunnel). From there you can
zip across the river to Las Olas or catch a ride up the New
River to as far as the Performing Arts Center. There are 8
stops--4 on each side of the river. This is a free service
provided by the city. And you are welcome to take your
stroller or bicycle on board. For more information check it
out on-line at

There have recently been complaints that the train horns
going through our area are louder than usual.
