Council Recognizes Community Foundation
The City Council took a few moments to recognize the Sierra Madre Community Foundation for its contributions to the City last night.¬† Rob Stockly, Chairman of the ten member, all volunteer¬†Board of Directors of the Foundation,¬†was on hand to receive a certificate from Mayor John Buchanan.¬† Stockly then spoke for a few minutes about what the Foundation, which¬†operates in partnership with the California Community Foundation,¬†does.
The Foundation serves as a resource for building and preserving permanently endowed funds that enhance the welfare of the residents and generally enrich the quality of life in Sierra Madre.¬† Among the projects that the Foundation has been involved¬†with are the restoration of the cannon at Memorial Park, the renovation of the Sierra Madre School auditorium, and the City Centennial celebration in 2007.¬† This year’s projects include sponsoring the Family Movie night at the Pool, the Arbor Day presentation by the City, and a technology grant for Creative Arts Group.
Currently, the Foundation is accepting donations to help fund the 4th of July Festivities.¬† Checks should be made out to Sierra Madre Community Foundation, with a note that it is a donation to the 4th of July fund.¬† Checks should be mailed to:
