The Sierra Madre Rose Float 
Association is well on their 
way preparing the 2017 entry, 
”The Cat’s Away”, ready for 
Tea complete with mice! 
Construction progress was 
viewed by residents at the Sierra 
Madre July 4th parade. If you’d 
like to help, come by the barn 
and help with the construction. 

 In addition to preparing 
for another Award Winning 
float, the Association granted 
a scholarship award earlier 
this month to Kristine Kuhn, 
pictured with a member of the 
SMRFA Board of Directors. 

SMRFA is a non-profit, 
all volunteer organization 
dedicated to entering a float 
in the annual Pasadena 
Tournament of Roses Parade. 
We are a totally “Self-Built” float 

– we design, construct, decorate 
and raise the necessary funds 
to produce our float every year. Funding is achieved through donations, memberships and 
local fund raising activities. 

The community of Sierra Madre is one of the oldest participants in the Pasadena Tournament 
of Roses Parade, having entered a float since 1917. The 2017 entry will be its 85th entry into 
the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade. 

Today, the Sierra Madre Rose Float Association designs, builds, decorates and completely 
funds the community’s annual entry. Carrying on a local tradition, ours is one of only a few 
all-volunteer-built floats remaining in the parade.

Words From the Sierra Madre PD: 


 Our neighbors Arcadia and Monrovia have experienced nighttime home invasion robberies in the 
past two weeks. The SMPD is asking that you continue to remain aware of your surroundings and 
to report anything that appears suspicious. SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING! 

A home safety tip: You might keep the deadbolt locked on the front door at all times, but 
what about the back door off the patio? Or maybe you leave the garage door wide open during the 
afternoons? Please be as conscientious about your less-used entrances as you are with your main 

Sierra Madre Police Department: would also like to remind you of the 210 Freeway closure for the 
next two weekends. Please see information on page B1.
