RYAC: Ririe Youth Advisory Council. This is a community youth group that focuses on service and leadership training. "Youth of Today...Leaders of Tomorrow" we symbolize uniqueness, individuality, creativity, and belonging. We do service projects year round, go to leadership training weekends, do fundraisers, etc. We are looking for members from 7th grade through the age of 21. We wanted a voice and now we have one.
Ririe Days are a celebration of our heritage, talents, resources, friends, neighbors, and culture. We have a 1/2 marathon, 10K, 5K, and fun run. A runner's breakfast put on by the RYAC youth group. An amazing flag ceremony. A golf scramble. An archery shoot. A car show, craft show, antique show, and entertainment. We have food booths and kids carnival games. A dutch oven cook off and prizes. We have an adult pitching machine play off and big kid trike races. The fire department sprays everyone off when it is sooooo hot and the RCCD has a raffle. There is so much going on and there is something for everyone!! Ririe Days is held on the 3rd Saturday in July. Visit www.ririedays.com for more information.

We would love to hear from anyone interested in community development. We host several events and have several action teams that work throughout the year and could always use more volunteers and help.
This year RCCD is hosting it's 3rd annual community trunk or treat. We work with the City to close main street so that community members can park on both sides of the road. We invite a local organization to host a fund raising dinner in conjunction with our event.
The Lost River Ramblers were amazing. People danced, talked, sang along, and visited. We had a really good turn out of all ages and everyone had a good time. Many even bought CD's to play year round.
