Pioneer Days 2004 main page


Longtime Sierra Madre residents gathered at Memorial Park to meet with old friends who returned for the Pioneer Days Treasure's Gathering.  Former residents came from all over to reminisce with old friends, review historic photo displays, share their own personal family albums, and talk about the town in the good old days.  Click on a photo below to enlarge it.
