Press release posted 1/9/14 – Joe and Jacquie Pergola have been named 2013 Citizens of the Year by the Sierra Madre Chamber of Commerce, it has been announced by Ed Chen, Chamber president.
This couple has exemplified the spirit of volunteerism in our community for many years including (partial listing) their many years of service and contributions to organizations such as the Creative Arts Group and The Sierra Madre Kiwanis Club.
The announcement was made on Wednesday and came as a total surprise to the Pergolas. A bouquet of flowers was presented by Chamber Board Vice President Noah Green at the Podley Real Estate office where Jacquie works. Joe had been lured there under a very creative pretense.
