We moved to Sierra Madre in 2000. After restoring our craftsman home, we thought we were through and could just lay back and relax. No way! There are too many interesting people and projects in Sierra Madre to stay at home.
We wish to give special thanks to the Chamber for hosting the 2016 COTY event. Our special appreciation goes out to Carole Cantebury, Judy Webb-Martin, Susan Henderson, past mayor Gene Goss, and Mayor Rachelle Arizmendi.
We want to thank the community for this honor and feel privileged to be a part of the Sierra Madre family.
The award night was made complete by the turnout of friends and family, the marvelous catering by Jackie of Nanos, and the music by Rich Johnson and the JJ Jukebox band. The Fourth of July parade was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
We again thank the community for this award in a town filled with extraordinary volunteers.
