The Family Movie Friday series is back for 2013 thanks to the generous support of the Sierra Madre Issei Memorial Foundation, Sierra Madre Volunteer Firefighters Associations, and Mother Moo Creamery! Also, a special thank you to Sierra Madre Kiwanis Club for their donation towards a new movie screen.
Preparations have begun! The Volunteers of the Sierra Madre 4th of July Committee are busily working on the 2013 celebration, and they need your help! The Committee is searching for sponsors to help make the magic happen and the "fireworks" pop. Think if just every family who loves the 4th donated $20 how much money would be raised!
Thank you for your consideration!
