It’s once again that time of year when the golf clubs are pulled out, the tennis racquets are restrung, and the day ends with some beer and brats! The City of Sierra Madre’s 9th Annual Oktoberfest Golf and Tennis Tournament fundraiser is right around the corner, and promises to be the best one yet. This year, the golf tournament will feature 3 hole-in-one mega prize holes with the opportunity to win a car, cash, or dream vacation! After the tournaments, come to our Oktoberfest Luncheon where you can win great prizes in our opportunity raffle, eat a wonderful meal provided by Matt Denny’s and have a beer specially brewed by Congregation Ale House.

Sierra Madre’s website and use of social media to reach local citizens received a 100% rating according to an Internet Strategy Report by Tripepi Smith & Associates, an Orange County technology public affairs firm. The report was released in July 2013 and focused on the ways in which cities embrace social media, offer greater transparency and increase citizen access to their government. Of the 88 cities in Los Angeles County, Sierra Madre shared top honors with Culver City. Three criteria were analyzed: access and usability of the website, engagement of social media tools, and fostering transparency and citizen engagement. Sierra Madre citizens have access to city documents online, a Facebook page, Twitter, eBlasts, calendar of events, and City News.
