Riviera Summer Festival success

Riviera Summer Festival wrapup

Last month’s Riviera Summer Fest on June 23 and 24,was a smashing success – from the incredible arts and crafts on display, to the delicious food, and amazing music.  Your Riviera Homeowners Association was privileged to be on hand to share with the community what we’ve been up to and to offer the chance to win some interesting prizes through our raffle drawing, in addition to raising a modest sum for our programs.

Here we see Judy and Nikki Brunetti  helping the RHA sell raffle tickets.  Prizes were a Firmstrong beach cruiser bicycle from Smith’s Cycles, a wine trolley with Castle Rock wines, a gift certificate for dinner and a movie at Rolling Hills Plaza, and a gift certificate to Wahoo’s Tacos.
