Rotary Dunk Tank Makes a Splash at  4th of July Festivities for Sixth Straight Year  The Sierra Madre Rotary Club again provided its "famous" dunk tank on Sunday, July 4th from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm in Memorial Park in Sierra Madre.  Your favorite community leaders, dignitaries and VIPs got plopped into the water as people lined up to toss balls at the dunk tank target.  All proceeds from this “fun raiser” will be applied towards community projects throughout the year.  Click on a photo below to see it larger.  Here's the list of those that were scheduled to be dunked.


If you see friends of yours on these pages, please be sure and let them know, so they can see themselves too.  A lot of people still don't know about this site, so please don't just assume they know their pictures are on the site.  They'll thank you for it, and we thank you for it as well.

Somebody did
