Spotlight News

Dell'Osso Farms invites Islanders
to become harvesters!

Dell'Osso Family Farms had such a successful cherry-picking event in May that Ron and Susan Dell'Osso are going to share the bounty of their fruit trees all Summer and into the Fall!

Islanders will have an exclusive opportunity to access the farm during a harvest! The Dell'Osso family is providing access to the farm without charge, however, we will charge a flat fee as a donation to Second Harvest Food Bank.

Because weather conditions control when the fruit is ripe for picking, you'll want to sign up for texts to be alerted about the dates and picking donation for each event.

Text the keyword ISLANDERS to 30120 to sign up now!

New Wine Club just for Islanders!

Have you popped open the bottle of Priest Ranch Wine that was included in your River Islands welcome basket and LOVED it? Here's some great news:

Priest Ranch, which shares a parent company with River Islands, is creating a wine club just for Islanders, with plans for deliveries to be made to our community four times per year,

accompanied by fun pick-up parties!

Along with a special discount on all wines, Islanders will be invited to the tasting room in Yountville for a complementary wine tasting once a year. What's more, The Boathouse will be hosting a Winemaker's Dinner in September, with the winemaker, Craig Becker, in attendance to set up wine pairings.

More details are coming soon so be sure to check back regularly!

GUIDELINES FOR PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SPACE USAGE

Want to have a picnic with your family or enjoy the recreational sports areas for an afternoon? The City of Lathrop's guidelines make neighborhood parks within River Islands available to residents on a first come, first serve basis.

Although there aren't any dedicated areas within the community that can be reserved on a regularly-scheduled basis, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Neighborhood parks are intended for walk-up use by residents.

  • Fire Station #35 at 19001 Somerston Pkwy has a community room available upon request. The Lathrop Police Department building, opening soon, will also have a community room.

COMMUNITY MAP

When you meet someone who tells you they live in Drake’s Bend, do you know where that is? Did you know that Lakeside is not 360 Lakeside? Wouldn’t you love to have a map that shows all of the River Islands neighborhoods, by name?

 

This is not a street map, but a neighborhood map, to help you navigate around the community as you put down roots.
