If you visit the City of Sierra Madre website, which is currently being revamped and redesigned behind the scenes, and you go to the Community and Personnel Services Department page on the site, right at the top, you’ll see a link to a community calendar. When you click on that link, it will take you to the News Net’s community calendar. The web address if you want to go directly to that calendar is www.SierraMadreCalendar.info, or, you can always find a link to the calendar on the SierraMadreNews.Net home page, in our blogroll on the right side of the page.
On the community calendar, you will find the date, time and location of all the City Commission meetings, as well as events that take place in Sierra Madre throughout the year. If the listing on a date is underlined, that means the listing is also a link. The link may be to the official website for the event, or it may be a link to an article that we have done about the event that offers more information about the event. From what we’ve seen, this is the most comprehensive Sierra Madre calendar found anywhere. We do our best to stay at least three months ahead, but there’s so much going on in this town that occasionally something goes up a little late or get’s missed. But you can help us with that. Here’s how…
If you notice an event needs to be added, or if you have an upcoming Sierra Madre non-commercial meeting or event that you’d like to add to the calendar, (no, we don’t mean little Stevie’s birthday party, Todd’s bachelor party, or Maria’s quinziniera), e-mail it to us at info@SierraMadreNews.net, and type “Please add my event to the community calendar” in the subject line. There’s a link at the top of the calendar page that says “Submit your Sierra Madre event for inclusion on the calendar” which, when clicked on, will open an e-mail that is already pre-addressed with the subject line -preloaded.
We use a third party calendar site to produce this calendar, and there are occasional glitches, the most common of which is an occasional failure to load. Just hit refresh, and it will reload to the original page. Because the domain is re-directed, it will always reload to the original page, not the page you may have moved to. This also means that bookmarking an event will not bookmark the actual event, it will bookmark the original calendar. Not a perfect set-up, but it’s the way it works.
