“Rockin’ Rio Nido” Column for the Sonoma County Gazette

The Sonoma County Gazette is a monthly community newspaper that features columns from towns in the area. Each of these reports covers local news, gossip, events, and issues of interest. Back in 2011, my then-hometown of Rio Nido didn’t have a column, so my friend and neighbor Elena and I started one.

For decades, Rio Nido was mainly a summer vacation community. But as more of us year-rounders moved in, we started to organize and promote neighborhood improvement projects.
