  BOARD OF DIRECTORS  
     
 
   
Rhian Miller  
I became a member of the Monte Rio community in 2008, when my husband and I bought our very first house here. Though we still commute to SF during the week for work, I was very interested in becoming active here and became a founding member and board member of The Friends of Monte Rio. I am excited by the new re energized group of board members and volunteers who have joined to support our ongoing programs and who are bringing fresh ideas for more community and educational opportunities for our residents. 

I am co-founder of The Working Group,  a non profit,  strategic media production company that documents stories focused on issues of workplace issues; race and diversity, and encouraging democracy and citizen participation.
 
I now work as a freelance producer, often in collaboration with KRCB, our North Bay  public media station.
     
    Rose O'Connor - Secretary
Rose O'Connor   A San Francisco native, Rose and her husband arrived in Monte Rio in January, 2020.  They enjoyed a few FOMR events before Covid shut everything down.  After two years without Game Night, Film Night and Supper Club, Rose is eager to support the rebuilding of FOMR’s calendar of events.

I became involved with Friends of Monte Rio in 2011. I have lived in Monte Rio since 1978 and over the years have seen the increased focus on tourism and less on resources for the local population. I liked their mission statement and desire to collaborate with the Monte Rio Recreation & Park District to bring more events and programs to the Community Center.

I moved to San Francisco from Philadelphia in 1967 and  moved to the Russian River in 1973. I worked at River to Coast Children’s Services in Guerneville for 25 years.

I made my way from Vermont to Berkeley in 1989 and shortly thereafter the winds of whimsy whisked me to scenic Monte Rio ~ which I've seldom felt the need to venture very far from…unless a must-see band is playing.
I am an avid drummer, actor and radio D.J. I collect books, beads, rocks and if you have time to spare, ask me about my record collection.

My volunteer commitments currently include board membership at KOWS FM 92.5 Occidental and River Friends of the library and I am also regularly engaged with the Forests Unlimited project and at local sites with the Redwood Empire Food Bank.

You may have heard my P.A. system over the last decade or so at the car show,4th of July on the beach, RioFest, or your neighbor’s swell dance party. I tend to be the first to arrive and ideally don’t finish until the last bottle cap is picked up.

But if it was some modern jive past 10 pm? I doubt it was me, I am a fellow who appreciates peace and quiet and welcomes the frog and cricket chorus in its due time.

Actually, yes-this baseball hat is from Bohemian Grove…that’s a whole ‘nother chapter…and not one I tend to opine about on the internet.

If you have an idea or suggestion about future events or programs, I'm all ears.
