OUR 7th ANNUAL OLDE TYME CHRISTMAS FAIRE
ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
All members are invited to attend our annual meeting which is held at the museum on the last Monday evening of the month of January; the next one's scheduled for Jan. 25, 2016. As usual, we will elect new officers and provide an entertaining program.
The museum opened its doors for the first time during the bass Derby in October, 1975. The Rio Vista Museum came about as a result of the country’s 1976 Bicentennial. People of the surrounding area contributed historical artifacts and the community has incorporated its own unique history into the museum. Volunteers make it possible to view the museum.
