It’s that wonderful time of the year again! Riviera Bay Luminaries!!! Our cherished tradition of lighting up our streets with luminaries is upon us. As always, our dedicated volunteers will be visiting you soon with these festive candles.


We’re excited to announce that Toni will be distributing the candles and bags to our volunteers starting the week of December 12th. This wouldn’t be possible without the amazing efforts of Jean Tyack, our distributors, and all our volunteers, who work tirelessly to keep this beautiful Christmas Eve tradition alive.


This year, we also want to honor those who have been integral to this tradition over the years. A special mention to Sheryl Spencer, who has been a part of this since 1993, and Roger Eitner, whose cheerful holiday greetings we will deeply miss. Their dedication and spirit have been the backbone of our community’s festive joy.


Thank you to each one of you for your contributions, big or small, in making Riviera Bay a wonderful place to live, especially during the holidays. Let’s continue to spread the light and warmth this season.

Our neighborhood has so many volunteers that donate time and have done so for several years. We appreciate all of our volunteers and want to take a moment to not only thank our current ones, but to reflect on our fellow neighbors who were also longtime candle distributers. Sheryl Spencer started delivering candles for our community in 1993. When her son was young, he helped her for many years. She and her husband, Dan, have been living in our neighborhood for many, many years, and have always been wonderful neighbors, and great friends. We cannot thank Sheryl enough for her 27 years of loyal dedication. Roger Eitner lived in our neighborhood over 20 years and started helping with candle delivery in 2013. You could catch him sitting in his front yard as neighbor after neighbor stopped by to get their candles. Since his passing this year, we will miss his cheery holiday greetings, along with that big smile.
