Canyon clean-up events this year. The April

closed-toed shoes, comfortable clothing,

Canyon Wilderness Park is located at 451 
W. Carter Ave., at the top of Grove St.

 For those not familiar with the Sierra 
Madre Environmental Action Council, 
S.M.E.A.C., by acronym, was founded 
in 1971 by an energetic group of 
environmentalists in the community to 
address recycling in the city of Sierra 
Madre long before recycling and green 
waste diversion was a governmental 
mandate and to provide a voice and tool for 
environmental awareness and education

Remember, Bring a friend - Saturday, April 
14, 2018 between 8 am and noon! 

The Mt. Wilson Trail Race Training 
Group will be meet in Kersting 
Ct. every Saturday at 7:00 am

Do you have a Sierra Madre memory to tell? This is your chance 
to have it recorded on video and stored at state and local archives. 
You will be part of the state historical record! AND there will be a 
presentation here in town of all the Sierra Madre videos created.

 Sierra Madre Historical Preservation Society members have regaled 
us with all kinds of wonderful memories of their lives in town – we 
know you have stories to tell! If you were raised here, what experiences 
and adventures did you have? If you moved to Sierra Madre, what was 
it like then compared to now? Do you have a memory connected to 
a place, or to a person – maybe a leading citizen of our town, or even 
a local character? These are just a few ideas to get you thinking what 
memory you’d like to tell.

 Part of this memory-gathering project, California Listens, is a free 
2-day workshop to create your little video (photos or memorabilia 
relating to your story are a big plus!). The workshop team will work 
with you all the way through, and you’ll end up with skills that could 
be useful for recording memories for your family, or doing other video 
projects. The California Listens Digital Storytelling Workshop is set 
for Friday and Saturday May 11-12, 2018 from 9 am to 5 pm at City 
Hall, located at 232 W. Sierra Madre Blvd. in Sierra Madre.

 In the workshop, participants will make a short video on a 
computer and will learn: how to make a great video story, how to write 
a narration script and record it, how to prepare a visual treatment for 
a story, and the basics of video editing in WeVideo. Powerful and fun! 
Anyone can contribute regardless of experience or technical level.

 The deadline to apply is April 28th. To apply, visit:
sierramadre or submit a paper application to the Sierra Madre Public 
Library. You can drop your application off at the library or mail it to 
them (Sierra Madre Public Library, 440 W. Sierra Madre Blvd. Sierra 
Madre, CA 91024). Or you can apply online at the website storycenter.

 The workshop is free, but pre-registration is required. Those taking 
part must commit to preparation time, attendance during the entire 
two days. 

 Collected video stories will be shared at a presentation during the 
summer and will become part of state and local archives of stories 
about what it means to be Californian. View collected stories at 




Lunch begins at 12:00 and is $10.
