Posted 1/18/14 – The Sierra Madre Rotary Club invites you to renew your marriage vows and help others at the same time. This Valentine’s Day at the Villa del sol d’Oro on the campus of Alverno High School, Sierra Madre Rotary is hosting a Wedding Vow Renewal event, for couples that have been struck by Cupid’s arrow.
Couples will renew their vows as a group (sorry, no self-written vows at this ceremony), and the plan is for members of the clergy from different denominations to officiate. A Methodist minister, a priest, and a rabbi have been invited, though as of this writing, only the Methodist minister is confirmed.
Cost to participate is $30/couple and $10/guest, with proceeds benefiting Compassionate Rescue, Sierra Madre Rotary’s International Water Project in Tanzania. Witnesses are encouraged, so long as they recognize there will be a $10 fee to attend, and whether they know someone renewing or not. Guests/witnesses are asked to dress appropriately.
Following the ceremony, there will be cakes or cupcakes supplied by Sierra Grocers, and sparkling cider provided by Albertsons. The special occasion begins at 5:30pm, and will be complete by 7pm. Members of Interact and Alverno students will be assisting.
A professional photographer will be on hand, and couples will receive a photo by e-mail.
