What is RIO-ONE?
As The Villages expands, each new area  is named as a village, such as, The Village of Rio Grande. It is also divided into units, such as, Unit 1, Unit 2, etc. We live in The Village of Rio Grande, Unit 1,
so we call our neighborhood

Our first party was on Halloween 1993 with an Hawaiian theme.

This was a few years before we were organized as Rio-One. During those years our social events were organized by Bob and Faye.
